Talon David shares feel-good anthem ‘Anomaly’

GRAMMY recognition for her song ‘Deep Snow’, a Bachelor of Music from Belmont University, a guest appearance in Neal Morse’s prog rock opera Jesus Christ: the Exorcist and a completely self-produced debut album, Talon David already stands as an acclaimed artist. Growing up in a musical household in Nashville and now finding her audience in the UK capital, she takes a creative mission to connect with her audience and provide them with music that makes them feel emotionally understood.

Talon’s latest single ‘Anomaly’ embodies this mission, giving listeners a tune that oozes a joyousness and contentment that is completely infectious. Bouncy melodies across the arrangements, but especially in the lead vocal, glimmer and twinkle across the soundscape. The track bursts with energy, always building with more danceable energy from bar to bar until it reaches a starry climax. Feel-good pop through and through, ‘Anomaly’ will make the darkest day bright.

Talon explains, “I’ve wanted a song titled Anomaly for a while. It’s one of those musical words I’d written down in my Notes app forever ago, and one day I decided to whip it out and see what would come of it. On this particular day I happened to be feeling good, and there was absolutely no reason for it (it was raining, COVID, midweek) except that I was alive and doing what I love. Social media was blowing up with all manner of complaint and general life disappointment, but I felt…good. I decided to explore the essence of that feeling: the euphoria that comes when things start to go right, especially when it seems to be in opposition to the world around you.

Music-wise I wanted it to be jumpy, perky, like if an LSD trip happened without taking LSD. Strange, out-of-place, slightly retro, but not unpleasant. The keyboard riff was the main strain with sparkling accents from the guitar, background vocals provided the psychedelic color, the sliding bass was the relative instability of the verses that turned into the certainty of the chorus.”
