Eagle and Talon’s new ep “In Manila” will be out Feb 22, 2011 on BI/AKKA Records.

Eagle and Talon have been confusing people since their formation. Splicing angular guitars and intricate rhythms with casio and scraps of musical theater, Kim and Alice Talon forge a sound that makes you wonder whether you’re being pet by a kitten or mauled by a lynx.

Kim Talon started composing music to temper the arctic conditions of her hometown, Winnipeg, Manitoba. At 18, she moved to NYC in search of warmer climates and a career in tap dancing. Meanwhile, Alice Talon was busy abandoning a career in classical piano to search for her ancestors. She left Cleveland for Taiwan, where she spent afternoons drumming in the basements of Taipei.

The two met in LA and played their first show on Valentine’s Day. In 2006, they self-released their debut EP Eagle and Talon Cares. Following their North American with Sia, the group retrenched in Los Angeles, began working on a new album and became fixtures of the Eastside music scene, sharing stages with Scout Niblett, Obi Best, Clues, Efterklang, the Airborne Toxic Event, Benji Hughes, The Mae-Shi, Bodies of Water, the Pity Party and the Happy Hollows.

In June 2009, Eagle and Talon released their first full-length record, ‘Thracian.’ The album was praised as an intelligent and difficult collection of “wild, wonky post-punk” (Washington Post), “a perfect antidote to all the magisterial synth irony that’s been all the rage.
