“No Dreams of Fayres” marks a step up in what 2019’s Tallies promised, once again drawing on the ethereal dream-pop aesthetics of Lush, Beach House and Cocteau Twins but this time turning the dial on some of those shimmering guitar lines. Produced by Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck) and Dylan Frankland of the band at Palace Sound, Baskitball 4 Life and Candle Recording in Toronto, “No Dreams of Fayres” documents singer, Sarah Cogan’s battle with depression; the moments when she was trying to work it out but couldn’t find the energy to do so.

Speaking about the new single, Cogan of the band says: “‘No Dreams of Fayres’ is a reflection of thoughts that I remember going through my mind when I stayed still in bed. Feeling as though staying still in bed was the only thing that would help the sadness – basically, disconnecting myself from family, friends, and having a life. Finding the way out of depression was hard but possible. ‘No Dreams of Fayres’ is also about the realization of letting yourself feel real feelings but not mistaking them for emotions. I had to learn to get a grip of what I wanted out of life and go for it with no self-sabotage – which was music, as cliché as it sounds. It pulled me out of bed, physically and mentally.”

TALLIES debut album: HYPE MACHINE premiere, ROUGH TRADE RECORDS (UK/US) ALBUM OF THE MONTH, and gets multiple spins on Steve Lamacq’s show on BBC Radio6. To celebrate, Tallies performed a free in-store at Rough Trade NYC. TALLIES self titled debut album OUT NOW via Hand Drawn Dracula /// ORDER HERE: http://smarturl.it/tallies
 
“Their woozy, jangly sound brings to mind dream pop of the 1980s” – HYPE MACHINE

“The guitars come right out of the 80s (and occasionally early ‘90s) for that jangling, chiming resonance and make for a dreamy soft-focus glow while the vocals bounce out to ace the sound.” – ROUGH TRADE

“Like nostalgia, spring is temporary, and Tallies are nearing full bloom, with all the pieces to outlast any season” – 8/10 EXCLAIM!

“Tallies is less an album than an old book of secrets, passed down from one generation to the next when the right age has come.” – BANDCAMP ESSENTIAL RELEASE

“Working together like a team of gifted archeologists, the band have created the best kind of backward-looking album. It doesn’t just repeat the past, it mines it for gold while tossing out the dross, a process that works to refine this record until it gleams like a precious gem.” – ALLMUSIC

“Sounding fresh and exciting whilst fully highlighting not only Cogan and Frankland’s insatiable knack for crafting timeless melodies, but also the taut rhythm section of bass player Stephen Pitman and drummer Cian O’Neill underpinning their every move… It’s also a glorious entrée of sorts to what promises to be a glittering career for its creators.” – 8.5/10 UNDER THE RADAR
