Talker Strips Down Studio Polished Tracks For LA Music Scene
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“…Talker (Celeste Taucher) would be the first artist to step onto the hand-made stage, and I was particularly excited to finally see her perform her solo music live. I’ve seen her perform plenty of times before, but she was always playing in the backing band. In fact, I had just seen her about a month ago when she played keys for Jen Awad.
I’ve been listening to Talker’s music since 2020 when I heard her single “Suck Up”. That single was an earwig, and I couldn’t get the chorus melody of “So there’s no way I’m not a mistake, I’m a suck up to myself, “Wish I was someone else” out of my head. It had real a crisp, emo-punk vibe with some serious pop leaning. That led me to her 2020 EP Wax, and I was hooked. Celeste knows how write some serious catchy, and hard hitting hooks (i.e. “Learning The Feeling”). Her 2021 collaboration with Crooked Teeth, “Light Me Up”, has been getting significant attention, validating my notion that Talker has definitely got something going on.
I loved the stripped down versions of the hard hitting, studio polished tracks that I was already familiar with. “Learning The Feeling,”, “Collateral Damage” and “Suck Up” (which she closed her set with). There were a handful of songs that I wasn’t familiar with, “Sad Chick”, “Don’t Want You To Love Me”, “Summerlin” and “Personal Space”… songs that I can’t wait to hear get “dressed up…”
