Perth’s queen of moody indie rock Tanaya Harper is excited to announce new single ‘Emma’ along with an intimate live performance to a real life audience in her hometown before the year is up. Since releasing her debut EP Some Kinds in 2018 and recent follow up Slow Motion Breakup earlier this year, Tanaya has grown an avid following with her insightful lyricism in the studio and charismatic banter on the stage.
Her music resonates with audiences far and wide as she delivers her personal experiences with depression, anxiety and living with bipolar disorder. Now, the rising young artist is thrilled to reveal the next chapter in her songwriting journey with her latest ode to recklessness, ‘Emma’.
Out now, ‘Emma’ was produced by multi-WAM Award-winning producer and engineer Dave Parkin (Jebediah, Abbe May, Spacey Jane) and mastered by William Bowden and is a catchy dose of danceable catharsis.
Channeling ‘90s indie rock and noughties indie pop, all driven by an edgy garage vibe that packs a punch of present day angst, ‘Emma’ is Tanaya’s first new music since her well-received Slow Motion Breakup EP of this year. Wrapped up in epic riffs and heart pulsing drums, its anthemic sing-along chorus stays with you long after you drop the hairbrush mic.
