The punk rock band TALIA (Thugs They Look Like Angels) consists of Alice Thomas (bass/backing vocals), Nicolas Costa (guitar/lead vocals), and Hervé Goardou (drums).

With aggressive riffs, heavy bass and pounding drum beats, TALIA falls in the line of sounding similar to 90’s rock bands such as Hole, The Pixies, and Nirvana. Being from Paris, France, they even made it into the French edition of Rolling Stone Magazine!

Hi! I'm Mel. I graduated with a BA in print journalism with music management as my minor. I loved music since I was a kid because it was always a way my family and I bonded, as well as a way to express myself on my own time as I got older. I’m not a singer and I don’t play an instrument, so my way of being part of the music industry is by getting to write about the music I love in various reviews and through my concert photography. Another goal? To make people smile.
