R&B Artist Taliwhoah Drops Smooth New EP
Whenever London-born, LA-based singer Taliwhoah releases new music, we drop everything to listen. She grew up surrounded by a creative family in a creative environment, so it’s no huge shock that she’s become enamored by the world of music. It’s not even much of a shock that we’ve become enamored by her. Tali is talented. It would be a disservice not to enjoy her growing body of work.
With her debut album releasing in just a few months, Taliwhoah recently dropped her latest EP, SOLAR, on Rostrum Records. It’s a crazy quick collection — just four songs clocking it at under fifteen minutes, so while we miss what could have been, it’s also fast enough to get through on a few rotations to fully experience its dreamy R&B arrangements.
SOLAR opens with “The One You Need,” a shimmering track built on quick drum pad beats and a coffee-shop kind of acoustic layer to it. Tali delivers an almost theatrical vocal part, showcasing her versatile approach, as the arrangement grows more robust. On “Juice,” warbling synth swells bloom from the very beginning before the track bursts into a sunny, slick R&B anthem led by Taliwhoah’s clever wordplay and best vocals. “Love Cycle” is the EP’s sole sexy, slinking track weighed down by sleepy synth chirps and confessional lyrics that tell the story of forbidden love. A silky piece of R&B perfection, it bolsters SOLAR as a worthy EP, which ends with “Planets,” a track that finds Tali diving into deeper, darker territory. The beats are significantly more aggressive than they had been, staccato punches that pound holes in a murky composition.
On her new EP, Taliwhoah delivers four dreamy R&B tunes that highlight her buttery voice and reflective songwriting abilities. Whatever comes next should be killer too.
