To be completely honest, we’d not heard anything about Brisbane singer Tara Simmons before an email notifying us of her brand new video popped into our inbox just recently. But having seen the clip and heard the song, we can now safely say that we have now – and we’re thrilled to be able to introduce her to you.
Tara’s track has already been given a little bit of airtime on Triple J, but she’s now ready to take it into the mainstream, following in the footsteps of other indie pop goddesses like Washington, Kimbra, Bertie Blackman and Sarah Blasko.
She’s drawn inspiration from a range of artists to come out of the Scandinavian pop scene and has created something that sounds very ‘now’, very fresh, all accompanied by a stylish, dark and edgy video clip that we’re sure artists like Ms Megan would be proud to call hers.
‘Be Gone’ is available on the iTunes store now; an album is due in the first quarter of 2012.
