Two years after the release of their critically acclaimed, self-titled debut album, Toronto-based indie pop outfit TALLIES are preparing to defy all expectations with their hotly anticipated new single, “No Dreams of Fayres”. A lilting yet powerful opus culled straight from the dreampop ether, it is both a direct continuation of the band’s sound, and an evolution into a stronger, wiser, and more mature version of TALLIES.
On “No Dreams for Fayres”, singer Sarah Cogan’s sweet, flowy vocals coast effortlessly atop Dylan Frankland’s crystalline guitars, every note conjuring up the jangled melodies of classic groups like The Smiths, The Sundays, and Cocteau Twins. Under it all, drummer Cian O’Neill’s driving percussion propels the song into the stratosphere. But “No Dreams for Fayres” isn’t merely an exercise in nostalgia — TALLIES’ modern twist adds a tightness, an urgency, an awareness that breathes new life into a beloved genre. “I don’t want to wake up/I just want to lay back down,” sings Sarah on the song’s chorus, encapsulating in few words how just about everyone has been feeling over the past few years. “It’s kind of ironic; I wrote the song pre-COVID, about a time of depression in my teenage years, but as soon as the pandemic started I had the exact same feelings,” says Sarah. “It was insane — how do we have a song that’s about me 10, 15 years ago, and is now relevant to me at 30 years old? It’s pretty funny how that happened.”
