May 23rd, 2023’60s Parisian detective, meets dystopian desert cowgirl…
Transportive and with a penchant for drama, Taylah Carroll wants to lay the world before her listener; a world she characterises neatly as: “a 60s Parisian detective, meets dystopian desert cowgirl”.
Hallmarked by commanding vocals and seamless transitions between vulnerability and strength, Taylah’s music melds confessional and dreamy alt-folk, with pop sensibilities and introspective lyricism.
This Melbourne-based artist plays the Daylesford Hotel this Friday evening May 26.
Lyrics form the centrepiece of her craft, exploring themes of self-actualisation, growth and loss, rich with brooding contemplation and punctuated by observational wit. The dissection of what she sees and hears around her, whether observing a friend mid-breakup or describing a childhood walk through the suburbs, is by turns charming and withering.
Her previous releases, ‘To Please Ya’, and ‘I’m Not Sold‘ have garnered support nationwide. Both singles received airplay across triple j, PBS, Triple R, FBi and rage, and featured on numerous Spotify curated playlists including New Music Friday, Indie Arrivals and Broad Chords. ‘I’m Not Sold’ was also included in The Guardian’s Best New Australian Music playlist for 6-consecutive months and secured her a performance at Federation Square’s Fed Live Summer Series.
This Friday evening’s gig is set to start at 6pm.
