Bella Union Records have announced the signing of Tallies. The Toronto-based band are today sharing their captivating new single, “No Dreams of Fayres“, which is released via Bella Union (UK/EU), Kanine Records (US) and Hand Drawn Dracula (Canada). The new single marks the first new music from the band since their acclaimed self-titled debut.
“No Dreams of Fayres” documents singer Sarah Cogan‘s battle with depression; the moments when she was trying to work it out but couldn’t find the energy to do so. Speaking about the new single, Cogan says: “‘No Dreams of Fayres’ is a reflection of thoughts that I remember going through my mind when I stayed still in bed. Feeling as though staying still in bed was the only thing that would help the sadness – basically, disconnecting myself from family, friends, and having a life. Finding the way out of depression was hard but possible. ‘No Dreams of Fayres’ is also about the realization of letting yourself feel real feelings but not mistaking them for emotions. I had to learn to get a grip of what I wanted out of life and go for it with no self-sabotage – which was music, as clichéd as it sounds. It pulled me out of bed, physically and mentally.”
