Tallies – Special [Music Video]

Today the Toronto based band Tallies dropped the music video for Special.
The fourth single is taken from their upcoming second album Patina which comes out on July 29, 2022 via Hand Drawn Dracula (Canada), Kanine Records (USA) and Bella Union (UK/EU).
A retro beautiful 80s inspired jangle dream-pop a-la Cocteau Twins vibe.

About the track:
“‘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.
