The Limerick Lady talks to TA Narrative

TA Narrative are the guests of this month’s episode of The Limerick Lady Podcast. 

T.A. Narrative is the electro-space-pop-punk duo from Limerick composed of Tara Nix and Anna Murphy. The pair, who are childhood friends, have worked together under various guises, sharing the stage in Irish punk bands and touring and recording in the U.S.

The Limerick Lady is a grassroots movement based in Limerick with a focus on promoting conversation around gender, visibility, gender balance and the arts. It was founded by award-winning (and losing) singer-songwriter Emma Langford, who hosts the podcast alongside fellow award-winning (and losing) Limerick woman, theatre-maker and musician Ann Blake.

On episode number 66, Emma says, “For our June episode, we got a twofer! We were joined this month by Anna Murphy AND Tara Nix of Limerick musical duo T.A. Narrative. We were also joined quietly (mostly) by Maeve the dog.

“The conversation danced with abandon through and around the topics of activism, Eurovision, the representation of women and queer people on stages and on radio, the impact of big mad costumes and face paint on stage, and how creative people need to “crawl out of their holes” and people generally need to “not be gowls”.

Starting a collaboration as T.A. Narrative during lockdown, their unique and exciting visual live show and the release of their debut E.P. ‘Retro Futurism’ in 2023 has firmly placed them as a must-see act. Drawing influences from post-punk, electronic, and sparkly pop music (from Fugazi to Kim Petras), they have been described as having a charming abandon and a palpable sense of freedom and joy in the music that they create by

Fresh off the back of a tour with Irish electronic giants, King Kong Company, a much talked about performance at last year’s Electric Picnic Festival, and having opened for the likes of Les Savy Fav, Bush Tetras, O., Le Boom & KYNSY, T.A. Narrative have just released thumping new single ‘Caught Out’ which will be followed by a new E.P. in the Autumn. 

They are booked for this year’s All Together Now festival. “Expect to dance your tits off.”
