HYPE MACHINE & ROUGH TRADE
Our 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 RADIO 6. To celebrate, we performed a free in-store at Rough Trade NYC.
“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 RECORDS
“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
“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.” - ALL MUSIC
“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
