Album Review: Talia’s Thugs They Look Like Angels


Thugs They Look Like Angels by French rock trio Talia has some serious 90s nostalgia.  The 2015 album is heavily influenced by grunge bands such as Nirvana and Hole.  Peppy riffs belie dark subject matter, like in the song “American Bride”:

Talia opened for Soul Asylum in Los Angeles this summer, and they’ll be opening for Nashville Pussy’s Paris date in 2017.  This is a band with a radio-ready sound that has been pounding the pavement for several years now; with their continued persistence and broad appeal, they should soon become a more familiar name in the United States and Europe.
