L.A. singer/multi-instrumentalist Talker, aka Celeste Tauchar, has shared a new single and video with the release of “Sad Chick.” An anthemic confessional, “Sad Chick” explodes as Tauchar’s confessional for what she calls her “depression habits,” those little routines that both maintain and help foster her helplessness. Cataloging all the ways in which she sees herself as just another sad chick, Tauchar rails against a backdrop of heady percussion and grumbling riffs.
The music video for the single, directed by Sean Berger and co-produced by Tauchar herself, sees the singer swaying by her lonesome against a variety of city backdrops with a trio of balloons in her hand. It then cuts to shots of her sitting in an armchair overlooking an expanse of city lights and then to her sitting alone in a bedroom — still with her balloons — underscoring the tired isolation and feelings of not being understood that she gasps out on the song. It’s a whimsical juxtaposition to the song’s heavy-hitting honesty about the vicious cycles of depression and its frantic finale only adds to the song’s lucid openness.
