Talleen started playing together in 2015 and released their first recordings online in 2016. After that, they were offered some local gigs, opening for bands like Idles, Odonis Odonis, Temples, and Viagra Boys. Their first LP (“The Black Sea”) was released in 2018 along with a couple of videos, one for “The Land” and another for “Knives.”
In 2019, they started working on a follow-up EP, but COVID sort of derailed that plan. They have just released a new single called “Economics” and will be following it up with another release in a few months.
