A relentless revolution in musical innovation! This is what you get every time you listen to the rainbow-unicorn band: Taiacore.

You can feel it in every song they compose and every concert they give since they got started in 2014. Now, with two albums under their belt and more international experience than one may expect for such a short-lived band, they have become a hallmark of creativity.

The band formed by Marta Tai and Vincenzo Tancorre got started in Berlin. Far from their respective homes, they found each other in the German capital. It was love at first sight, and their musical chemistry, palpable. In less than two weeks they had already composed their first few songs for the Berlin Lacht Festival, where they took the stage together for the first time: Marta as lead vocalist, and Vincenzo playing the guitar and the banjo. With their Folk and Country sound, Taiacore was born that day.

After leaving Berlin they went to California for a brief period of time. Their stay in the West Coast was a major influence in their first album “Innocent,” in which one can easily feel a certain L.A. kind of vibe. Moreover, it was precisely in L.A. where they shot their first music video “She didn’t love you,” and where they got two lasting members of the band: a guitar and a banjo that they still use in their concerts.

Combining Folk, Country, Rock, Pop and Electronic music, they finished “Innocent” in Madrid in 2014. This album took them all over Europe, and cities such as Paris, Lyon, Amsterdam, Breda, Barcelona, Zaragoza, Leipzig, Hamburg or Dresden had the chance to enjoy Taiacore’s musical whirlwind. The success they reaped during their European tour led them to take the next big step in their career: leaving their former jobs and devoting their entire time to Taiacore.

2017 was a turning point in their trajectory: rlectronic music, synthesizers, and drum machines took the spotlight in songs such as “Not Boring Like You” and “All I need” (vinyl records both of them). They showcased them in New York, and their time in the city that never sleeps would change their style even further.

Their second album, “Freedom,” was released in late 2018. Much more indie and electronic than their first project, their second album contains songs like “Women” or “This Time” that drink deeply from rock and electronic music. Moreover, in this album Marta and Vincenzo didn’t just polish their very characteristic sound: their lyrics became clearly political as well, standing up for personal freedom and gender equality. In this regard, their song “I Said No” appears as a fierce and fearless plea against sexual harassment in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

Taiacore is here to stay. Be ready for the revolution!

Una revolución de creatividad que no cesa en ningún momento. Esto es precisamente lo que define a la banda del unicornio multicolor, Taiacore.

Estando presente en cada nota y movimiento que el grupo ha dado desde que comenzó su andadura musical, allá por 2014. A sus espaldas, dos discos y un cúmulo de experiencias internacionales, que han ido configurando un grupo con nombre señero y sonido propio.

El dúo formado por Marta Tai y Vincenzo Tancorre comenzó su andadura en Berlín. La capital alemana unió a dos creadores compulsivos, muy lejos de sus respectivos hogares. El flechazo fue instantáneo y la química musical, innata. En menos de dos semanas, habían compuesto un repertorio para el Berlin Lacht Festival.

 Atrás dejarían Berlín para vivir de forma fortuita el sueño americano. California inspiraría a Marta Tai y a Vincenzo T. de tal forma que gran parte de su primer álbum ‘Innocent’ tiene olor L.A. Además, allí grabaron su primer videoclip ‘She didn’t love you’.

 Sin embargo, no fue hasta que llegaron a Madrid cuando pusieron el broche final a su primer LP. Las raíces Folk, Country y Rock se mezclaron con sonidos pop y unas pinceladas de electrónica, que ya anunciaban lo estaba por venir. ‘Innocent’ (2014) pronto les llevó a recorrer los escenarios europeos más variopintos. Ciudades como Londres, París, Lyon, Amsterdam, Breda, Barcelona, Zaragoza, Leipzig, Hamburgo o Dresde disfrutaron de este torbellino musical llamado Taiacore. El inesperado éxito les llevó a otro paso natural en su trayectoria: constituirse como banda.

 En 2017, las pinceladas electrónicas se convirtieron en trazos firmes. Sus dos singles ‘Not boring Like You’ y ‘All I need’ (grabados en vinilo) tenían una clara presencia de sintes y cajas de ritmos. Este nuevo camino les llevó, entre otras cosas, a tocar en Nueva York. La ciudad que nunca duerme marcaría un antes y un después en la experiencia de Taiacore como banda.  

 A finales del 2018, llegaría su segundo álbum, ‘Freedom’, donde la banda haría del Rock Indie Electrónico su seña de identidad. Así, ‘Women’ es potente y rockero, mientras que ‘This Time’ bebe electrónica, y su aclamado folk electrónico queda patente en la pista que da nombre al disco. Con su segundo LP, Taiacore no solo termina de definir su sonido, sino que además, deja claro que sus letras son reivindicación y denuncia. Marta Tai y Vincenzo T. hacen una llamada a la libertad personal, el amor sin cadenas y la igualdad. ‘I Said No’, por ejemplo, toma el #NoesNo para cantar a pleno pulmón y sin pelos en la lengua al acoso. 

Taiacore es un todo que ha nacido para revolucionar.
