Touting a strong, muscle-y rock sound heavy on distortion and strong vocal melodies, Talia remind of a more distortion-friendly of The Replacements, who they cover here, while also bring to mind The Hold Steady. A cover of The Replacements track, “Bastards of Young” is a catchy take on the track that showcases the band’s strengths well. They started recording their next EP with Steve Albini in October, a perfect producer fit considering the band’s obvious love for ’90s alternative. Fans of ’90s alternative and recent acts in the vein of The Hold Steady will undoubtedly find their comfort zone in Talia, a trio with members from Los Angeles and Paris that’s fast on the rise. Albini will only help matters.

Raw and hard edged rock and roll is the concept here. This is a screaming hot cut with punk rock, straight rock and roll and even some power-pop in the mix. It’s energized, fun and rather catchy.
