Tallies Share “Wound Up Tight” and “Heavens Touch”
Having recently announced their signing to Bella Union and shared the captivating single “No Dreams of Fayres”, today Tallies share two more stunning new tracks from their upcoming second album, due for release later this year. Blistering new single “Wound Up Tight” comes accompanied by a psychedelic video created by Christopher Mills. “This song is about being stuck in a constant rotating vicious circle that makes one want to tear their own hair out,” say the band. “A feeling towards someone who just doesn’t care enough to make a change.”
Tallies have also shared a more wistful new track titled “Heavens Touch”. Commenting on the track the band say: “This song is someone’s pleas for more love, more time, and more effort from their partner. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in exchange for more love.”
Produced by Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck) and Dylan Frankland of the band at Palace Sound, Baskitball 4 Life and Candle Recording in Toronto, the new tracks mark a significant step up in what the band’s 2019 acclaimed debut album 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.
Tallies, who have previously opened for the likes of Mudhoney, Tim Burgess, The Ocean Blue and Hatchie, is made up of founding members guitarist Dylan Frankland and singer/guitarist Sarah Cogan, who are joined by drummer, Cian O’Neill. Tallies recently announced to play at next month’s SXSW Festival in Austin and New Colossus Festival in New York. The band will also be performing at Focus Wales in May and will be announcing further UK shows soon.
