Song of the Day: Talker – Sad Chick

Talker is the indie rock project of Los Angeles-based Celeste Tauchar – or as she calls  it, «emo indie rock with glitter all over it.» The name is a nod to her last name, notorious in her family for being misspelled and mispronounced. Starting out touring and playing for other bands including electro-pop group  Frenship, Tauchar quickly gained extensive performance experience at venues and  festivals like Red Rocks, The Bowery Ballroom (NYC), The El Rey Theatre (LA),  Lollapalooza, and Outside Lands. Throughout the 2020 lockdown, talker locked herself in the studio with her collaborator & producer Dan Sadin to work on new music, starting with the single Sad Chick. The song is about the absurdities of our depression and how sometimes it can feel so melodramatic, even if it’s how we feel. The song is a self-aware, tongue-in-cheek acceptance of that reality, saying no, I haven’t changed my clothes in three days. No, I can’t find my keys and haven’t left my house in a while. But it’s also a song of liberation – it’s absolutely okay to feel like this sometimes and just accept things as they are. Enjoy it!
