Following the release of her recent single ‘Just My Type (A Little Bit Lonely)’, Tulliah the 19 year old singer songwriter from Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, has today unveiled a stunning new single ‘Distant Dreams’ alongside news her debut EP Fre$h Hugs will wrap itself around you on 12th March (via AWAL). Listen to ‘Distant Dreams’ HERE.
The title origins of ‘Distant Dreams’’ came from the back of a painting in her parent’s home. Tulliah describes how the captivating track came together, “We set up my new piano in the backroom of my parent’s. My mum was moving a painting that they have had for years to the top of the piano when she read the back of it – it was called Distant Dreams. This song flowed out of me. I used to never really believe that I could achieve my dreams. This song is about not wanting to break away from my visions and goals. The lyrics ‘don’t go waking me up’ is a really direct demand to myself! It’s about not wanting to go back to doubting my capabilities.”
‘Distant Dreams’ follows Tulliah’s debut single ‘Company’ from 2019, which earned her a spot as a finalist in the triple j Unearthed High competition that year, and recent single ‘Just My Type (A Little Bit Lonely)’, released at the end of 2020 – which saw her land a coveted spot in The Independent’s (UK) Ones To Watch list for 2021. Both ‘Distant Dreams’ and ‘Just My Type (A Little Bit Lonely)’ will join two further tracks on her dizzyingly mature and powerful debut body of work titled Fre$h Hugs out on Friday 12 March.
The Fre$h Hugs simultaneously captures Tulliah’s pure brilliance in pop music, alongside the heartfelt stories and emotions that give them their soothing edge; balancing both intimacy and richness through swirling and incredibly powerful pop music. Dean Tuza (Stella Donnelly, The Rubens) sat in the production hot seat across the entirety of the EP, working closely with Tulliah to finesse each track. In addition, Grammy-winning producer David Kahne (Lana Del Ray, Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks) produced string arrangements that feature on the EP.
