Tall Friend

New Tall Friend Album Available for Streaming

Safely Nobody’s, the new album from the trio of Tall Friend, will be released on August 11 via Exploding In Sound. The record casts light on fragile isolation of the past in episodic songs, finding beauty within the sadness. Delicate instrumental interplay gives these songs room to breathe, echoing emotive depth. Planet Phitness will host the band’s release show this Friday, supported by Anna Altman, Really Big Pinecone, and MS Saint.

New Music Video: "Small Space" - Tall Friend

Tall Friend announced last month that they would be releasing their debut full-length album, Safely Nobody's, on August 11 via Exploding In Sound. Below is their second single from the forthcoming LP, which is also accompanied by a music video that was directed by Allyssa Yohana. "'Small Space' is a song about growing up in an environment that rejects and suppresses you, then coming out on the other side alive and new. I like the idea of biological processes occurring in spite of difficult circumstances," Tall Friend's Charlie Pfaff shared with The Fader about the trio's latest track. The band will be performing next in Philly tomorrow evening at Everybody Hits with Mal Blum & The Blums, King Azaz, and Jenna and The Pups.


New Track: "Oats" - Tall Friend

DC transplants Tall Friend reissued their EP Tawl Friend earlier this year via Exploding in Sound, who will also release the band's first full-length album. Safely Nobody's is due out August 11, but you can take a listen to the steady, instrumental build and revealing, intimate lyrics, found on the record's lead single, "Oats," below. The trio is currently on tour, and will be wrapping it up with a homecoming show in Philly this Sunday, June 11 at West Philly DIY space All Night Diner with Flashlight O, Bay Mollusk, and Yours Are The Only Ears. 

SXSW Bound: Tall Friend

We're in the middle of SXSW, and as more and more bands continue to ascend on Austin, it gives us a chance to check out some Philly acts, making the trek, that we are less familiar with. Earlier this year, the trio of Tall Friend re-released its debut EP Tawl Friend on vinyl via Exploding Sound Records. Singer-songwriter Char (a.k.a. Charlie Pfaff) recorded the introspective collection of tracks with bandmates Cale Cuellar and Jesse Paller during the spring of 2015 at Kokomo. Pfaff was only seventeen years old at the time, which is obviously surprising given the stark, honest beauty of her initial effort. Tall Friend will be performing this evening at the Funeral Sounds/Topshelf Records Unofficial SXSW Showcase at Eden House Co-Op, with fellow Philadelphians Kississippi, as well the Official Exploding In Sound Records Showcase on Thursday, March 16 at The Velveeta Room.
