Over the past six months, south Londoner TALA has had everyone under her spell with some introspective, multicultural (by way of Iran) electronica. So, why mention her now? To be frank I didn’t really get the hype, it all felt a little noisy to me.
But it’s with new single ‘Alchemy’ where things change. It’s by far her most interesting track to date, and by far, her best. Her hazy vocals, reminiscent of BANKS, ignites a moody atmosphere as the scattered beat (produced by TALA herself) brings it all together. The single is taken from her forthcoming Alchemy EP which is out 17th November via Aesop. Whilst you’re at it, give the rest of her music a listen over at her Soundcloud.
