Los Angeles foursome Talk In Tongues didn’t come out of nowhere, although it sounded that way when their debut single “Still Don’t Seem To Care” suddenly appeared online. And it felt that way for them at the beginning, too, when each member was a refugee from another band that just wasn’t working right.
