Taleen Kali has released her new single, “#1 Crush” (Garbage cover). Stream HERE. Produced by Kristin Kontrol (FKA Dum Dum Girls), the cover is a dark and noisy version of the 1996 hit song featured in the Baz Luhrmann film, William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. “I chose to cover ‘#1 Crush’ to marry my love of Shakespeare and my musical heroes, Garbage,” explains Taleen. “This song is how I became turned onto dark alternative ‘90s music, so it’s an honor to pay musical homage to Garbage by releasing our own version of the song for the Halloween season.” For more information on Taleen Kali, please visit: https://taleenkali.com/.
