Tallies share new single ‘Special’

The Toronto-based band, Tallies are sharing their new single, ‘Special’ which comes as another preview of the band’s forthcoming second album, Patina which is out July 29 via Kanine Records (US), Hand Drawn Dracula (Canada) and Bella Union (UK/EU).

Speaking about this new single, Sarah of the band says: “‘Special’ is about longing to be seen and heard by those who matter to you most. Sometimes feeling invisible is particularly painful when the indifference comes from someone whose opinion means a lot to you.”

The juxtaposition of light and dark is a strong theme in the music of Tallies and certainly apparent once more with this new single, ‘Special’ – another fine example of their gliding, shoegaze-adjacent jangle-pop reminiscent of The Sundays, Galaxie 500, Ride, etc. While many of their songs are upbeat, with Frankland’s breezy guitar lines drenched in reverb, soaring over Cian O’Neill’s propulsive drumbeats, Sarah’s lyrics can add a hint of shadow to even their most jangly tunes.
