Tallies - "Mother"

As those of us in the Northeast brace for another Nor'easter and are desperately looking for an end to winter, we might start looking to summery music to help remind us that warmer weather is around the corner. We probably wouldn't expect that music to come from Toronto, but here are Tallies with just that sound.

Formerly known as Thrifty Kids, Tallies have released a new single, "Mother." (In case you want to feel ancient, the origins of the band start way back in 2006 when guitarist Dylan Farkland met drummer Cian O'Neill at School of Rock Camp when they were thirteen and twelve.) The new song blends some diverse retro sounds into something completely new. I already brought up a summery sound, so there's some obvious comparisons to The Beach Boys. Staying pretty close is a heavy dose of 50's doo wop. They also throw in some 90's with the dream pop before it was a genre sound of The Sundays, along with some of the more upbeat, jangly mid-90's alternative. It creates a song that sound fresh but comfortingly familiar.

You can watch the video for "Mother" below. The song is currently available on the band's Bandcamp. For more on Tallies, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
