Love Thy Neighbour Presents:
TALLIES navigate an unfamiliar world on their confident self-titled debut album, which blends elements of shoegaze, dream pop, and surf rock into a fresh sound that’s all their own. The band was founded by singer and rhythm guitarist Sarah Cogan and lead guitarist Dylan Frankland, a couple who met in a sound engineering class while attending Algonquin College. Tallies’ sound was fully realized with the addition of Frankland’s friend from childhood rock camp, drummer Cian O’Neill, and bassist Stephen Pitman. In a year since relocating to Toronto, the quartet have played shows with bands like Mudhoney, Hatchie, Sloan, and fellow Toronto band Weaves.
“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.” – Sarah Cogan of Tallies
“this quartet hit a melancholy sweet spot between The Sundays, Sarah Records and Slowdive” – Q
“Tallies outperform expectations and presents a band to watch” – THE DAILY MIRROR
“this Toronto-based quartet inject sufficient Sundays / Cocteaus-ish vocal and melodic bounce to soften even the most calcified indie heart” – MOJO
“Chuck in a dollop of shoegaze and dream-pop, and a smidgeon of surf pop, and you’ve got a rather lovely complete package.” – CRACK
Originally a bedroom project formed by guitarist and singer Heather Sheret, HANYA are now an established Brighton trio creating fiery shoegaze combined with a psychedelic 70s sense. The group released their debut EP ‘I Used To Love You, Now I Don’t’, in November 2018 on Bristol’s Leisure Records to critical acclaim, hailed by the likes of BBC Introducing, Get In Hers and Drowned In Sound.
