Reliably informed

The latest Taliraw release is a collection of eight new tracks, instrumentals, songs and spoken word that sound fresh and buoyant. Featuring the deftness of cello playing used on previous solo releases and various musical collaborations, its stereotypically mournful sound acts as a foundation as much as an emotive tool.

Healing For Myself backs up the lively guitar strumming with sweeping cello chords, while Insecurities builds tense, attacking rhythms and EP title track Delicate Concrete weaves a contemplative tone. There’s a wide expanse, ambition and a longing for home literally expressed on the song Quick Sand. Hopefully, the art is enough to contain these longings as they help make Taliraw a fascinating and exciting musician not just for the region but everywhere.
