London-born rising star Tally Spear has just released her brand new single, Fun House. Penned around Tally’s own struggles with her anxiety and getting in her own head, the carnivalesque verses build up to a riff-lead earworm of a chorus.
Tally has explained, “I wanted to use a metaphor of a ‘house’ to describe the mind, and build this visual concept of being ‘stuck in a fun house.’ Playing on how something that is meant to be positive can easily turn dark and claustrophobic.” Fun House is available to stream/download now here, and the video can be seen here.
The singer-songwriter is preparing to make her long-awaited return to the stage later this month, where she will support Phantom Isle at London’s Old Blue Last. Tally will also be heading back to Vegan Camp Out Festival in August, where she has supported the likes of Akala in the past, and The Green Door Store in Brighton on 19thSeptember. Tally has cut her teeth on the live circuit over the last few years, playing venues such as a sold out Ronnie Scott’s, and performed at the renowned BST Festival in Hyde Park, alongside the legendary Celine Dion, Stevie Wonder and more.
Tally’s self-titled debut EP has amassed 150k streams across all platforms, and tracks Already Gone and Oddballwere both added to Apple Music’s prestigious New Music Daily playlist, upon release. Tally’s last single When Nobody’s Around received plays on Amazing Radio and Kerrang! Radio. The songstress has also garnered great early radio support from the likes of Radio X and BBC Introducing London, across previous singles. Tally’s track Can’t Find What I’m Looking For features in indie film Infinitum: Subject Unknown, starring the legendary Sir Ian McKellen. This is quite the accolade for a completely independent and DIY artist; an ethos which is very important to Tally.
Tally’s passions go further than just music; raised as a vegan, she is also a keen animal rights activist, and is a massive fan of sustainable and cruelty-free fashion. Ever since Tally could hold a pen, the chanteuse has been writing poetry and stories. A trained pianist and self-taught guitarist, the multi-talented artist started writing and playing music at a very young age. Brought up on powerhouses such as Carole King and Bob Dylan, Tally’s own sound is an amalgamation of her punk attitude and pop sensibilities.
