he journey towards the October 2nd release date of Pennsylvanian nu-core quartet TALLAH’s debut album ‘Matriphagy’ is getting hotter still, as the band release yet another brand new video single drawn from their forthcoming release.
Conceptually, ‘Overconfidence’ sits just before the band’s previous single, ‘Placenta’, serving to set up its themes of cutting loose from all the pressures, fears, insecurities and anything holding you down, controlling you, and not letting you be your free, unashamed self.
To do that, however, you first need some awareness – which is where Tallah’s latest single comes into play. ‘Overconfidence’ tackles the need to realise your flaws and grow to accept them, own them, and use them to become the best possible version of yourself.
“Obviously, this is easier said than done, but the point is to acknowledge your weaknesses and turn them into strengths”, comments Tallah vocalist Justin Bonitz. “This in itself is a positive message, but the song is called, “Overconfidence” not “Confidence,” meaning that the song has a darker undertone based around turning that “self-actualization” into an arrogance, which ends up slashing your heel and making things worse.”
