Talons are an instrumental band, who call the backwater town of Hereford their home. Forging explosive energy, delicate subtleties and fractured song structures, Talons possess a fascinating sense of urgency and drive, with a sound that both soothes and savages in equal measure. Talons are not a post-rock band, nor are they a math rock band. Talons, are Talons. The six-piece are best experienced in a live environment, where the visceral, raw energy of their music can be fully appreciated. Signed to UK independent label Big Scary Monsters, debut single ‘The Pearl’ was released in August 2009, followed by a series of limited edition split singles. An anthology containing all works by the band, entitled ‘Commemorations’ was released in September 2010. In November 2010, Talons further consolidated their place amongst their peers following the release of their debut album, ‘Hollow Realm’. The album received widespread praise in the press, released in the UK and Europe on CD and in the USA on 12” Vinyl. The plan for the remainder of 2011 involves extensive touring of the UK and Europe, along with various festival appearances. Work is then scheduled to begin on a follow up release to Hollow Realm.
