Cheap Ecstasy - Single

On 28 May Tarn released 'Cheap Ecstasy', the final part of the  “Monarch” EP.

Tarn says "I feel like 'Cheap Ecstasy' fits well with the rest of the songs on 'Monarch' even though it's the most pop/rnb song in the mix. At the heart of it though it’s still just me and a guitar. I wanted all the tracks off ‘Monarch’ to have a sense of calm and happiness to them and I wanted 'Cheap Ecstasy' to centre around feelings of being around a loved one."

It's written, performed, recorded and produced by Tarn.

Indigo Dreaming - Single

On 26 February Tarn released 'Indigo Dreaming', “Part three” of the upcoming “Monarch” Collection.

'Indigo Dreaming' is a mixture of indie folk and pop elements.  It was also recorded in lockdown in NZ and lyrically is about living in a time of anxiety and stress, trying to be okay with that and how being with someone you love can help alleviate those feelings.

It's written, performed, recorded and produced by Tarn, with additional production by artist/producer Neil Macleod from Wellington NZ.

Sky is Falling - Single

On 11 December Tarn released 'Sky is Falling', “Part two” of the upcoming “Monarch” Collection.

 

As the first song written for the project, it came from being forced to slow down the pace of life during lockdown.  It evokes rolling hills and driving with the rain coming down the window, It’s a song to heal, to support and to hopefullly offer uplift in some way to each listener.

 

It's written, performed, recorded and produced by Tarn.
