Wallows Release New Single ‘I Don’t Want to Talk’

Wallows are back with a new video for “I Don’t Want to Talk.”

This is the band’s first release since their Remote EP in February. Having worked for over a year on this track, Wallows stars in the warm, vintage-kissed video. The song sings of pushing a girl away and simultaneously pitying yourself: “I’m not alright / but I don’t need comfort / I don’t want to talk.” As the band takes part in random activities—reading fortune cookies, boxing, jump roping, singing to a mirror in a field—they attempt to avoid her seeping into their thoughts again, and they would rather have her “tell me that it’s over.”

“‘I Don’t Want to Talk’ is ultimately a song about insecurities,” Dylan Minnette said in a statement. “Not only in yourself, but in this case, particularly in a relationship. It centers around the fear of being away from someone for too long and that ultimately allowing the other person’s head to be turned by someone else, and instead of expressing those fears, completely shutting down and not wanting to talk about it at all.”

Watch the video for “I Don’t Want to Talk” below.



Wallows is Minnette, Braeden Lemasters, and Cole Preston. The group released their debut record Nothing Happens in 2019, produced by Grammy-award winner John Congleton.
