Bio

TARA SIMMONS 1984 - 2019

'North' is a lustrous, dark pop song propelled by a wonky beat and pulsing production that borders on abrasive. It’s darker than most of her releases to date, but there’s a certain euphoria floating above, carried by a stunning vocal performance that unfurls as the song crescendos towards its conclusion - a brilliant burst of urgent rhythms and chiming guitars. With North, Tara is on a search for direction, navigating a path to beauty through imperfection and bold experimentation and emerging on the other side with a single-minded creative vision.

It is the second single from her forthcoming record and legacy to this world.

So good to hear new music from you Tara. To be fighting through unimaginable obstacles and get back to this point is feat to be admired. Likewise I'm crushing on this resplendent slice of widescreen pop.

slowing down your vocals whilst upping everything else is a high risk high reward move that worked a treat. a cheeky 6 years between drinks for tara and it's a seriously lovely return.
