TALLIES – ” Patina “

Posted: August 11, 2022 in MUSIC

Toronto’s Tallies have been perfecting their own shimmery, jangly take on ’80s and ’90s dream-pop”

Tallies have been honing their shimmering brand of dreampop for the last five years, drawing from a very specific place and time — I put it at England from 1987 to 1991 — when 4AD and Creation were the among the coolest labels around, and dorm rooms walls were decorated with posters of The Smiths, Cocteau Twins, The Cure, and The Stone Roses.

Tallies proudly still have those posters on their walls and they aren’t shy about those influences (see below), but they’ve grown as songwriters, performers and arrangers, and use these shimmering sonic touchstones to their own means. Their just-released second album “Patina” is terrific, and you can listen to that below.

Tallies singer Sarah Cogan says the influences behind the album, which include The Sugarcubes, Saint Etienne, Ride, Cocteau Twins, The Sundays and more. released October 20, 2022
