meet your new favorite, Talker

October 14, 2019

The two words best used to describe talker’s “Keep Me Safe” would easily be relatable and cathartic; the new single from Los Angeles-based songwriter Celeste Tauchar (she/her) slowly and smoothly unpacks the familiar fear of a relationship’s impending demise, and then explosively releases the tension as the song comes to an eventful and intense finish.

Named for the way most people have mispronounced her family’s name since, well, forever, talker is an outspoken grunge-pop project that’s destined to blossom into something so much more.

A video for “Keep Me Safe” is out today, and is Tauchar’s best attempt at creating a visual manifestation of that fear and anxiety over the inevitable. But the story doesn’t end here, as more new songs are on the way that will complete this lesson talker’s trying to teach through her own experience and an undeniable honesty.

“There is still redemption in owning up to your feelings,” she explains. “It’s about getting them out in the first place, and then trusting how you feel regardless of how hard that may be.”

After years spent cutting her teeth playing with electro-pop band FRENSHIP (Columbia Records), playing in venues and festivals like Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Lollapalooza, it was due time for this young powerhouse to take center stage. Following a series of debut singles last year, this past February saw the release of talker’s debut EP, Horror Films, a brief but impactful collection of self-discovery anthems.

The music immediately caught wave within the city, attracting attention from LA-based indie label and collective Common Ground, to which she is now signed, as well as a handful of media outlets like Grimy Goods, who said the EP “embraces pain as if grabbing a rose by the stem with bare hands,” and PopMatters, who raved about Horror Films’ relatability, declaring the songs felt more like “personal therapy as she slowly untangles the knotty mess of wires in her head.”

It’s that same relatability that remains constant across all of Tauchar’s work, and will undoubtedly continue to be a huge factor in the music she continues to make into 2020 and beyond.
