Perth multi-instrumentalist Tanaya Harper burst back onto Australia’s indie music scene in October 2019 with her insightful lyricism and silken melodies, bearing all on her current single ‘Crash Pad’, which is lifted from her forthcoming EP Slow Motion Break-Up, due for release in early 2020.
The end of 2019 saw Tayana play a sold-out hometown single launch, named as a highlight at Perth’s inaugural WAM Fest, as well as ‘Crash Pad’ coming in at number 5 in the top played songs on RTR radio, plus charting in the Top 10 Amrap Metro Charts for two consecutive weeks.
Tanaya is now pleased to introduce her new band, in her dreamy music video directed, edited, and produced by Perth filmmaker Matthew Pitcher.
‘Crash Pad’ is a song is about feeling unloved in a relationship, which over time leads to the person daydreaming about whether they would be happier alone. “The dreaminess that Matt has communicated in the video may relate directly back to discussions we had about what the song is about: when there’s a disconnect between two people when they aren’t seeing eye-to-eye when there’s this space between them that they just can’t seem to mend,” explains Tanaya on the making of the video.
