TALL is the brainchild of frontman Eric Barron. Based in Dallas, TX, the band’s sound draws from a sonic palette of garage, indie, psych, surf punk, & doo wop. In January 2014, Eric recorded and self-released a limited amount of four-song handmade demo cassettes under the name TALL. Shortly after this release, Eric met bassist Yaschua Duprey and drummer Jon Jackson. Chemistry developed quickly and by mid-April the band recorded a seven-song demo in the garage of Eric’s parents house. Throughout that year, the band went on to play at venues such as: Club Dada, The Prophet Bar, Crown & Harp, Double Wide, Lola’s , Shipping and Receiving, J&J’s, Rubber Gloves and at festivals such as The Deep Ellum Arts Festival, and All Last Saturndays at Muddy Waters.
The band’s debut album exhibits a sound as diverse as their influences. The record resists easy categorization, jumping from alt-country and punk, to heady psych and garage rock anthems. Recorded throughout the winter of 2014/15 at Yasch’s own Duprey Studio Recordings, the full-length LP comes with all the perks of being recorded in a top-notch studio: superb gear, tight arrangements, and inspired performances throughout.
TALL are currently playing shows in the DFW area and working on material for their next record. Their music is available for streaming below and for purchase here.
