Seigar, the photographer, is back.
Welcome to 2019!
When you come upon a song like “Who Saw Who,” you definitely wonder who is behind it. You do some research, and voila! After checking her Instagram account to gossip a little bit, and then reading her interesting interview for i-D VICE, you come to the conclusion you have found a diamond in Tara Lily.
Although this diamond is just 20 years old, she says she has been working hard in music for ten years. And for the last two, she has worked on her future EP and this song in particular (Jammer, the grime MC rapper, as producer). You just have to see her photos and read her words to find her big personality, and something unique. Tara Lily is special. Her voice is amazingly strong and her look is like heaven on earth. Jackpot!
What does she sell? She sells urban jazz. It seems her influences are a blend of the rappers and beat makers from her Peckham origins (South London), and also classical-jazz trained musicians. And this is exactly what we get from this single. I’m saving the comparison you are all thinking about; let’s give her a try to be herself first.
These days it’s easy to hear people criticizing some music genres because they don’t consider them to be good enough; those are just prejudices. So it’s a pleasure to hear from this young voice that you can get inspiration from different backgrounds.
And remember, you heard it first here at Memoir Mixtapes.
I’m sure that 2019 is going to be hers.
