Tallows - "Sea Bitch" (audio) (Premiere)

by Brice Ezell

16 September 2014

The soaring vocals and the high-range guitar riff of "Sea Bitch" make it ideal for fans of indie rock at its purest.

Oklahoma City indie outfit Tallows is on the path to release its next studio album, following 2013’s Memory Marrow. As a little taste of what’s to come, you can stream the band’s latest tune “Sea Bitch” below. From its tenor vocals to its high-range guitar riff, the song is both emblematic of what indie rock is in 2014, as well as a song all Tallows’ own. (Plus, how could you refuse a song title like “Sea Bitch?”)
Josh Hogsett, guitarist and vocalist, says of the tune, “‘Sea Bitch’ is about wanting to live a new life each week. There’s so many different directions to go, but eventually people find the means to narrow it down and focus on one thing, while in the back of their head, they still want to try something else. ‘I can feel the weight of lives I’ll never lead… passing right through me’ repeats in the chorus to emphasize this concept or realization. It foreshadows the theme for our upcoming album.”

Regarding Tallows’ future recording plans, Hogsett says, “We are currently in pre-production and anticipate the album will come out mid-2015.”
