Talker: a sonic kaleidoscope

February 19, 2020

“I’m a thousand versions of myself when I wake up,” Celeste Tauchar (she/her) quietly confesses on her latest single, “Suck Up.” The young Los Angeles-based singer/multi-instrumentalist behind talker is really only just getting started, but she’s already begun to make a name for herself and the undeniable relatability that spans across her discography.

“Suck Up” is the latest to be released from talker’s upcoming EP, Wax, following 2019’s “Learning The Feeling” and “Keep Me Safe.” More than anything, this song truly defines Celeste’s sound and what new fans can expect from her in the future, instantly calling to mind a mix of inspirations like Paramore, Wolf Alice, and Mitski.

A video for “Suck Up” is out today and currently premiering via The A.V. Club, who raves about how "the kaleidoscopic clip mirrors the song’s themes of ephemeral identity and the frustrations of emotional inconsistency." For Celeste, the video represents all the various “versions of herself,” from spilling her guts in therapy to sitting alone near the snacks at a party.

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 Celeste’s hometown of Los Angeles, attracting attention from LA-based indie label and collective Common Ground who signed talker practically on the spot, as well as a handful of media outlets like Grimy Goods, who said her music “embraces pain as if grabbing a rose by the stem with bare hands,” and PopMatters, who raved about talker’s relatability, declaring her songs feel more like “personal therapy as she slowly untangles the knotty mess of wires in her head.”
