Talltale returns with “26”, an alt/electro-pop anthem to millennial resignation. Set to a dreamy, lo-fi instrumental she co-produced, “26” confronts not being where you thought you would be by a certain time in your life, while climate change, political unrest, and financial instability act as the backdrop to the mounting anxiety.
Talltale’s live show sets her apart from other artists in her genre, as she plays a standing electronic drum set while singing. Her clever, sincere lyricism, rhythmic melodies, and distinct vocal sound has earned her previous work Best Electronic Song of 2018 in the Canadian Songwriting Competition, Artist to Watch at the EMAs, and a nomination as Electronic/Dance Artist of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards. The lead single, Tokyo, off of her previous album, A Japanese Fever Dream, was placed on curated playlists and played across CBC, Sirius XM, and college radio, while the music videos for Tokyo and Shed My Skin were on rotation on Stingray’s 4k. Upon the end of the album cycle, Talltale was invited to perform at the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo. When not working on her own music, Talltale works as a writer for J-pop and K-pop artists.
