South London singer-songwriter, Tara Lily returns with her first taste of new music since the release of her last EP ‘Last Flight Out’. New single ‘Double Time’ see’s the classically trained jazz musician enter a darker era lyrically and expand into a more electronic sound that heavily delves into frenetic energy of drum n bass.
Growing up in south London with a strong connection to her British-Bengali heritage has given Tara Lily a unique perspective on music and global culture. She has spent her life absorbing a multitude of sounds and genres from her surroundings, ranging from alternative R&B to classical jazz and traditional Bengali folk music. It was this intriguing blend of sounds and her deep understanding of the worlds they come from which caught the attention of the likes of Virgil Abloh, Gilles Peterson, Iggy pop and Motown Records UK, who signed Tara as their first British artist.
A formidable talent who celebrates strength and power in her music, ‘Double Time’ marks the start of this new chapter for the rising starlet who is set to release a brand new project this year to follow up her acclaimed EPs Last Flight Out and Lost in London. Firstly, she trails a number of UK festivals including Glastonbury for a run of summer shows as well as play The Hundred Cricket Final at The Kia Oval on August 9th. She will also embark on a UK tour this October, bringing her electrifying live show to cities such as Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and Bristol where she’ll end in her hometown of London for her biggest show to date at Village Underground on 10th October.
