Accents release uplifting new album ‘Tall Tales’

If you’re a fan of Mumford and Sons then you’re bound to love this band. Indie rock/folk quintet Accents. Blending together a soulful melodies and soaring vocals with impressive instrumentation, this remarkable band have created a diverse set of songs that speak with both honesty and passion. Members of Accents explain the meaning behind the album: “The whole idea behind Tall Tales is looking at the stories we are told as children, and reconciling them with where we end up as adults. When we’re kids, we have the entire world in front of us. And these stories give us hope. But our life trajectories often don’t align with those imaginary places we dreamt of as children. Our paths may change based on the experiences we have and the people we meet. Although our destinations don’t always match what we hoped for as kids, we shouldn’t cherish them any less,” says lead vocalist TJ Foster. “To me, this album is not about growing up. It is an album about being ‘grown-up’ and looking back on all of our triumphs and mistakes. It’s an album about being at peace with who you are, not wishing you were someone else. Lyrically, Tall Tales comes from a place of reflection, not anger or resentment. We hope people take a message of positivity from these songs. We all have stories to tell. We all have experiences to share. And they shape us into who we are today. Often times reality is more beautiful than fiction.” “Music is one of the very few things that can bring people together from all walks of life to feel something they cannot describe. It’s a sense of unity, which today, is not easy to come by. We are constantly reminded of our differences, and are pressured into comparing ourselves to each other in a most unhealthy way. I hope that when people listen to this album, they can find a connection with us, and the songs therein. This album is a reflection of all that Accents stands for and believes in.” ‘
