Tallies – Wound Up Tight / Heavens Touch [Music Video]

Toronto based band Tallies dropped two songs called Wound Up Tight and Heavens Touch
These two tracks are 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).
Both songs have this great dreamy pop a-la retro shoegaze throwback vibe.


About the tracks:
“Wound Up Tight” continues to deliver on the promises that their debut record outlined pulling on the shoegaze/dream-pop tropes of Lush, The Sundays, Beach House, etc, placing laser-focused guitar lines below washes of synth and electronics.
The accompanying video helps bring to life some of the rushing soundscapes, marrying them with stuttering camera shots depicting car journeys. Coming produced by Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck) and Dylan Frankland of the band at Palace Sound, Baskitball 4 Life and Candle Recording in Toronto, “Wound Up Tight” addresses the constant drag of being caught in vicious cycles whereas “Heaven’s Touch” is about looking for affection in your partner.

Speaking about the focus track on the mini-EP, “Wound Up Tight”, singer Sarah Cogan explains: “This song is about being stuck in a constant rotating vicious cycle that makes one want to tear their own hair out. It’s about a feeling towards someone who just doesn’t care enough to make a change.” When discussing “Heavens Touch”, Cogan explains: “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.”
