The Toronto-based band, Tallies, is coming out with a new album tomorrow, January 11. Some people might categorize them as dream pop, like Mazzy Star. I think even the band might say that they are a mix of dream pop, surf rock and shoegaze.
I don’t disagree but they sound a bit more upbeat and new wave, like the Go-Go’s. Maybe Tallies will fill the void that the Go-Go’s left in my heart.
Ironically, I do like the song “Beat the Heart.” My New Year’s resolution is to listen to more positive or more upbeat music. I feel like listening to a different playlist will help to fight the winter blues. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that Tallies will be on everyone’s playlist this year and for many more years.
Sarah Cogan of Tallies has this to say about the new album:
“Tallies was written over the course of 2018. It was a year filled with on-going changes and the adaptation of adult life. This album embarks on a year of growing and the feelings left behind when everything around you is shifting.”
