The highly critically acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter Tash Sultana has returned with another head bopping jam, the luscious ‘Pretty Lady’.
Centered around a repetitive, trance inducing rhythmic guitar motif, the four and a half minute jam is perfect for the warmer weather that’s coming our way (if only we could be outside to enjoy it!). In typical Tash Sultana style, the track is superbly arranged. With interjecting textures of claps, shakers, and strings amongst the expansive reverberated layers filling out the epic summer soundscape.
It was co written with Matt Corby and Matt Hulme in Tash’s home studio back in November 2019. On the experience Tash said: “I’ve been trying to figure out how to write this song for 6 years. I used to loop it and just freestyle to it when I was busking years ago but I always got stuck on the same parts. I put the song in a box at the back of my mind and revisited it in November 2019. I had Dann Hume and Matt Corby spend some time in my studio and that’s when I decided to show them this song. It’s my first song I’ve collaborated with other players on.”
The song is accompanied by a heartwarming video, featuring artists, friends and family, performing a choreographed dance to ‘Pretty Lady’ from various locations of isolation. Tash said: “The idea behind the video was to really inject some joy and fun into people’s places of isolation, but also to highlight the diversity of spaces and places and show that we are all in this moment in time together, dancing in solidarity.”
