Taking it all down a notch or three here with a fine new release from Aussie mellow ‘one person band’ Tash Sultana. Sultana has been a frequent visitor to the Triple J top charts in recent years but this is my first helping of their music. Sultana is no slouch when it comes to being candid and honest. Although only a ripe 23 years old, this Aussie has been through the crippling lows of drug abuse and has spoken publicly about the fact, brave soul and someone who can surely be an inspiration to other in that tricky situation.
‘Can’t Buy Happiness’ is a beautifully sung slow ballad that lyrically hits the mark! It begins with Sultana’s subtle voice accompanied by electric strings, gradually progressing into a heart wrenching soul-baring high range vocal exhibition. This song is an absolute belting new one from this mercurial talent. Be sure to check out this one, a real gem of a thing here!!
If you wanna catch this great artist live – you can – Tash Sultana will be London’s Alexandra Palace June 28th.
