TOUR DATES

 
ABOUT 

talker is the indie rock project of Los Angeles-based Celeste Tauchar – or as she calls  it, “emo indie rock with glitter all over it”. The name is a nod to her last name, notorious in her family for being misspelled and mispronounced.


Starting out touring and playing for other bands including electro-pop group  FRENSHIP, Tauchar quickly gained extensive performance experience at venues and  festivals like Red Rocks, The Bowery Ballroom (NYC), The El Rey Theatre (LA),  Lollapalooza, and Outside Lands.


After years of touring with Frenship and developing her own artistry, Tauchar  began independently releasing music under the name “talker”, which received  attention from such notable outlets as Alternative Press, The A.V. Club, NPR Music,  Grimy Goods, Buzzbands LA, We Found New Music, and more. Her first singles  charted on HypeMachine and were featured on Spotify editorial playlists, all while  being independently released and promoted by talker. 


After the release of her first EP “Horror Films”, talker began playing frequently  across LA and beyond. Deeply rooted in the Los Angeles indie scene, talker has  headlined the Hi Hat, the Bootleg Theater, the Moroccan Lounge, and others, and has  performed at countless other notable venues including the Roxy and the Echo. In  2018 she toured opening for Yoke Lore, and has opened for notable artists in LA  including retro rocker Hannah Wicklund & the Steppin' Stones. In January 2020, she  embarked on her first co-headlining tour up the West Coast, performing at venues  including San Francisco’s Neck of the Woods and the iconic Crocodile in Seattle. 


talker’s second EP “Wax” was released by Common Ground Records in March 2020.  Coming out just in time with a few days to spare before the California lockdown  began, talker celebrated the release with a set at LA’s beloved Emo Nite at the  Echoplex. The A.V. Club named the track "Suck Up" "an absolute riot—Tauchar  cinches up her verses so tight that her spring into the chorus is nothing short of  ecstatic."


In March 2021, talker released a collaboration with Crooked Teeth called “Light Me Up” that premiered on the World Famous KROQ and charted at #2 on KROQ Locals Only, as well as the Top 20 on the U.S. Submodern radio charts.

 

Throughout the 2020 lockdown, talker locked herself in the studio with her collaborator & producer Dan Sadin to work on new music, starting with the single "Sad Chick". The song is about the absurdities of our depression and how sometimes it can feel so melodramatic, even if it’s how we feel. The song is a self-aware, tongue-in-cheek acceptance of that reality, saying no, I haven’t changed my clothes in three days. No, I can’t find my keys and haven’t left my house in a while. But it’s also a song of liberation - it’s absolutely okay to feel like this sometimes and just accept things as they are.
