Tallies+ A LESSER VERSION + KJAERRA
We’re thrilled to be hosting the Toronto-based indie-pop quartet Tallies in Birkenhead this May, fresh off the release of their brand-new EP Wound Up Night, featuring the single No Dreams of Fayres. It’s a lilting yet powerful opus culled straight from the dreampop ether, acting as both a direct continuation of the band’s sound, and an evolution into a stronger, wiser, and more mature version of Tallies. Come experience it live, as well as the rest of their laid-back back-catalogue, with us on 11th May. Support on the night comes from A Lesser Version and Kjaerra.
Tickets on sale now.
“No Dreams of Fayres” marks a step up in what 2019’s Tallies promised, once again drawing on the ethereal dream-pop aesthetics of Lush, Beach House and Cocteau Twins but this time turning the dial on some of those shimmering guitar lines. Produced by Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck) and Dylan Frankland of the band at Palace Sound, Baskitball 4 Life and Candle Recording in Toronto, “No Dreams of Fayres” documents singer Sarah Cogan’s battle with depression; the moments when she was trying to work it out but couldn’t find the energy to do so.
Speaking about the new single, Cogan says: “’No Dreams of Fayres’ is a reflection of thoughts that I remember going through my mind when I stayed still in bed. Feeling as though staying still in bed was the only thing that would help the sadness – basically, disconnecting myself from family, friends, and having a life. Finding the way out of depression was hard but possible. ‘No Dreams of Fayres’ is also about the realization of letting yourself feel real feelings but not mistaking them for emotions. I had to learn to get a grip of what I wanted out of life and go for it with no self-sabotage – which was music, as clichéd as it sounds. It pulled me out of bed, physically and mentally.”
“Dreamy guitar pop with that Canadian sensibility, with influences ranging from The Pastels to The Sundays, Orange Juice, and The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart.” - CLASH
