Talulah Paisley

Listen to Talulah Paisley's somber ballad "Call," plays Mercury 2.10

There’s no rest for antifolk folk hero Talulah Paisley, who over the last three months has made a consistent habit of releasing engaging-yet-muted singles on Bandcamp, manifesting a mood board of introverted, off-the-cuff observations that showcase her prowess as an insightful songwriter. “Call” is the latest entry to this sonic scrapbook, a soft slow jam marked by a careening vocal performance against a steady acoustic accompaniment. Present are the somber similes we’ve come to expect from Paisely’s uniquely folksy craft (“squish me like your third grade putty”) amongst impressionistic observations of heartbreak — paired together, they create a grounded recollection of love and loss that makes a seemingly intangible sadness feel painfully real.

Stream Talulah Paisley's sweet and sad "Used To," plays Baby's 12.19

There’s an immediate warmth present in “Used To,” the latest single by New York-based artist Talulah Paisley, a feeling derived from the track’s lofi production and Paisley’s earnest, down-to-earth lyricism. While detailing the feeling of being the subject of another’s affection, and the subsequent feelings of dejection when that affection shifts to another, Paisley strums and plucks, shifting the tempo of her folk in an energetic, albeit sad fashion. It’s immediately evocative of NYC’s antifolk scene, and recommended listening for those seeking acoustic songwriters with a raw, tell-it-like-it-is voice; stream it below, and catch Talulah Paisley at Baby’s All Right on December 19th, alongside Zenizen and Water From Your Eyes.
