WORLDWIDE TOUR DATES KICK OFF SEPTEMBER 1

With their sophomore album TERRA FIRMA, TASH SULTANA continues to expand their global success with more than one billion streams and their first #1 album on their native Australian ARIA Albums Chart, along with a Rolling Stone Australia cover story.

The February 19 release of the genre-defying 14-track album on Mom + Pop Music, composed, arranged, performed, engineered and produced by TASH, has been greeted with an array of critical accolades praising the artist’s artistic evolution. TASH–singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and electrifying performer–has added to the looped and layered jams with a dazzling patchwork of soul, funk, R&B, folk, rock, hip-hop–you name it. The result is TASH’s most ambitious triumph to date.

NME (UK) noted in their review that “The Aussie star embraces all sounds but maintains a delicate vulnerability on album number two…” with THE GUARDIAN (UK) saying “TERRA FIRMA is as expansive and chilled as we’ve come to expect from Sultana…” GUITAR PLAYER in the U.S. says: “It’s a deceptively crafty concoction that feels thoroughly organic and effortless.” NPR’s “All Songs Considered” also shined a light on the album in their “New Music Friday” coverage.

“Australian singer Tash Sultana released their sophomore album Terra Firma this week, offering up the grounding track ‘Blame It On Society.’ True to her sound, Sultana combines dizzying guitar chords with her measured lyrical delivery, pointing out the flaws that are ingrained our society.”

–Carolyn Droke, UPROXX, 2/23/21

Home

“…proficiency in around a dozen instruments, all contributing to the vast, looping sonic landscapes of Terra Firma…In many ways, Terra Firma reflects a centered, cerebral moment for Sultana. From the opening instrumental ‘Musk,’ Sultana launches into a bizarro world that’s awash in layered psychedelia. The whole album is like falling down a rabbit hole of serenity, punctuated by Sultana’s inevitable, crescendoing instrumentation.”

–Raffaela Kenny-Cincotta, RELIX, 1/29/21

“…Terra Firma is Tash’s most expansive effort to date. The final product pairs staggeringly raw songwriting with intricate instrumentation and lush production, fusing jazz, soul, funk, psych rock, and R&B influences along the way. Thematically, the album builds toward a sense of liberation, with the closing number literally called ‘I Am Free.’”

–Matt Wallock, AMERICAN SONGWRITER, 2/17/21

“Terra Firma is a record that listeners can get lost in. Sultana’s sonic presentation is spread across a collection of deeply introspective songs that touch on soul, funk, pop, R&B and hip-hop. There are dashes of rock and even folk. It’s a deceptively crafty concoction that feels thoroughly organic and effortless. Intoxicating guitar loops on blissed-out tracks like ‘Pretty Lady’ and ‘Sweet & Dandy’ bury themselves into the thicket of one’s senses, and the cavernous soundscapes that form the musical beds of ‘Coma,’ ‘Let the Light In’ and ‘I Am Free’ unfold like dreams. It’s all dynamic, head-turning stuff…”

Joe Bosso, GUITAR PLAYER (print), March 2021

“Terra Firma is a masterful mix of R&B, soul, indie-rock, alternative and shoegaze.” 9/10

–Miguel Costa, MUSIC CONNECTION, 2/23/21

“…Terra Firma is mostly rooted in laid-back, gentle grooves (you can slow dance to it, but this isn’t exactly a funk-fest), with more room for personal introspection and ruminations on relationships and one’s place in the larger world (as well as occasional observations on the unexpected consequences of fame)…Sultana’s vocals have gained some range and nuance since their first album, and there’s a welcome sense of the artist embracing the joys of pushing the boundaries; the guitar work here is very fine but not flashy, and shares the stage with keyboards and other flavors that give the tracks a rich and varied sound. In short, Terra Firma confirms Tash Sultana isn’t interested in being your new favorite guitarist as much as they want to be a musician and songwriter with the talent and ambition to go in any direction they choose…they have the talent and vision to be an artist who is going to be around for a while, and it’s fascinating to imagine where they can go next. Terra Firma shows where they are now is already pretty impressive.”

ALLMUSIC.COM, 2/19/2021

Without a doubt Terra Firma is a relatable masterpiece made for the hearts that long to be mended by the power of music. Its intoxicating grooves and hypnotic riffs are instantly inviting, but with depth that reveals its rewards the more you absorb it. From the previously released evocative ‘Greed’ to the enthralling ‘Beyond The Pine,’ Tash departs from looped and layered jams towards meditative combinations of soul, funk, RnB, folk, rock, and hip hop. The 14-track album takes root into far-reaching sonic territory, while each song stands out with its individualistic flare and sound. Ultimately meshing together to create a flawless album that showcases Tash’s musical and lyrical growth.”

–Gibson Shaffer, GRATEFUL WEB, 11/30/2020

“No one makes music like Tash. Their ear for densely layered orchestration culminates in this transcendent, slightly psychedelic new track that reminds listeners that You are enough, to live in the present moment away from negative distractions. As Tash demonstrates their famously proficient guitar ability in the intro, the instrumentation quickly grows to include increasingly intoxicating layers of angelic chimes, organic samples, rich horns, fleeting harps, and much more…”

–Austin Miller, THIS SONG IS SICK, 1-22-21

“Groovy ‘Willow Tree’ is filled with colorful horns and the whimsical guitar, keys, and bass loops that made you obsessed with Tash in the first place. You glide through this magical journey, with Jeome Farah and Tash’s soulful vocals perfectly complementing each other, and you can’t help but get lost in it.”

–Nicole Proctor, EARMILK, 12/22/2020

“Terra Firma remains a remarkable experience that finds a way to demonstrate real human vulnerability while building mystique around its creator. Sultana learned guitar at age 3, reportedly plays 20 different instruments and composed, arranged, performed, engineered and produced just about every note of their first two albums–all by the age of 25. There’s nothing they can’t play and less they can’t do. But it’s the restraint shown in the minimalist moments that show why slowing down was the right choice for Sultana on Terra Firma.” 7/10

–Skott Bennett, RIFF MAGAZINE, 2/15/21

“…soulful and sublime outing. Whether she’s waxing mystical or being more forthcoming, Sultana’s art here is striking.”

–Kevin Wierzbicki, ANTIMUSIC.COM, 2/19/21

“Multi-instrumentalist Tash Sultana’s sophomore effort Terra Firma bumps along, dripping with layers of early 90’s R&B, indie rock, and dream pop escapism. Playing all sounds while delivering floating vocals, Sultana is a musical force over the fourteen neo-new jack swing and soul/pop offerings.”

–Shawn Donohue, GLIDE MAGAZINE, 2/19/21

“Tash Sultana’s Terra Firma is a masterful piece of art that bends sound and genre to her will and gives us an unfettered look into her soul.”

–Austin Miller, THIS SONG IS SICK, 2/19/21

Tash Sultana’s long-awaited second record Terra Firma firmly secures their intrinsic, holistic artistry. And like the ponderous smoke-tendril of burning incense, Sultana’s slow jam snakes around your earholes with an enchanting athleticism.”

–Cassia Briscoe, HAPPY MAG TV, 2/19/21

“’Terra Firma’ maintains Sultana’s instrumental opulence but with a more mature and seasoned perspective that is flecked with vulnerability… This record definitively shows off the balance of Tash Sultana’s skills as a musician and as a songwriter as they try to find firm ground to stand on amidst the chaos of the world. Sultana is truly gifted, and their biggest challenge right now seems to be finding new ways to innovate and build upon an already complex, remarkably unique sound.”

— Claire Stephens, B-SIDES TV, 2/20/21

TASH SULTANA TODAY RELEASES
THEIR NEW ALBUM
TERRA FIRMA
LISTEN NOW

ARIA Award winner TASH SULTANA has today released their sophomore album, TERRA FIRMA, out now on Mom + Pop Music.

LISTEN TO TERRA FIRMA NOW

Having already given fans five tastes of the music one can expect on TERRA FIRMA (“Sweet & Dandy,” “Willow Tree” feat. Jerome Farah, “Greed,” “Beyond The Pine” and “Pretty Lady”), the album showcases 14 tracks that are recognisably TASH SULTANA, but its lyricism delves deeper, its impact more nuanced. The expansive “Coma” flows with vision, the evocative “Greed” proffers a soul-funk examination of the corrupting influence of wealth and fame. And the idyllic love song “Let The Light In” feels close and warm–“I’ve just found my one. She’s a golden gem,” they smile when they speak of their fiancé. “Sweet & Dandy” is a slinky indictment on the internet era’s information overload. “But where’s the wisdom? Where’s the knowledge?” TASH asks. “Vanilla Honey”–named after the two flavoured cigars gifted to TASH from their partner–is a tender ode to how love can centre us amidst the chaos.

TERRA FIRMA sees TASH bare their soul on two levels. Spiritually, it arrived in a time of global detachment and acted as a conduit to reconnect to their core selves–something TASH had been dismissing during strenuous global tours. And musically, where its 14 tracks take root into far-reaching sonic territory.

TASH has added to the looped and layered jams with a dazzling patchwork of soul, funk, R&B, folk, rock, hip-hop–you name it. The result is TASH’s most ambitious triumph to date. It’s Erykah Badu meets Bon Iver, meets John Mayer, meets whatever.”

Written and recorded over a full year, from October 2019 to October 2020, TERRA FIRMA saw TASH in full flight as they recorded, engineered, performed, arranged, and produced the album themselves. Four to six days a week were spent in their Melbourne studio, and just when TASH surpassed the 200-day mark on the project, it was done.

Presented with a title inspired by finding their home within themselves, TERRA FIRMA is the work of a more confident, dynamic, and experienced musician. The record was conceived amid a period of self-reflection when life was involuntarily slowed down amid a global pandemic. When TASH wasn’t in the studio, they found time for surfing, gardening, writing poetry and a healthy balance from the hectic touring lifestyle that defined their existence.

While TERRA FIRMA still cements the oft-used description of a “one-person band”, the record hosts a first for TASH SULTANA with four carefully chosen co-writers. TASH collaborated with fellow ARIA winners in artist Matt Corby and producer Dann Hume (Courtney Barnett, Amy Shark) on “Pretty Lady,” “Crop Circles,” “Beyond the Pine” and “Greed.” Meanwhile, “Willow Tree,” the nocturnal groover about get-rich-quick pyramid schemes, features TASH’s high school friend Jerome Farah. Farah is signed to TASH’s own Lonely Lands Agency, launched in 2019. Finally, “Dream My Life Away,”an ethereal, guitar-driven duet, was co-written with close friend Josh Cashman, who TASH tapped as their tour support through America in 2017.

For TASH SULTANA, artistic growth is paramount. It makes sense then, that the live shows for TERRA FIRMA will showcase TASH in a new light. “2020 was about recording and writing the music. And this year will be about creating the show and bringing it to people,” says TASH. “The new live show is everything the live show already was, plus a few things up my sleeve–but you’ll have to be there to understand,” they tease.

“I’ll always be solo,” TASH adds. “That will never, ever, ever change.”

For TERRA FIRMA, the goal seemed simple: to make music that comes from a place that’s unashamedly honest and ventures new territory. Because if it does, you’ll never fuck up,” TASH reflects. “I want to be an artist and make music non-stop, and just set the bar for myself every single time.… I just wanted to feel better, be better, perform better, play better, sing better. To be a better musician. And I think this record does that.”

PRE ORDER | PRE SAVE NOW

ARIA Award winner TASH SULTANA has today released another taste from their sophomore album, “Sweet & Dandy,” out now on Mom + Pop Music.

CHECK OUT ‘SWEET & DANDY’ HERE

Marking the fifth track from the upcoming TERRA FIRMA album out February 19, ‘Sweet & Dandy’ is recognizably TASH SULTANA, but deeper and more nuanced. The song is a slinky indictment on the internet era’s information overload with them asking the questions “But where’s the wisdom? Where’s the knowledge?”

Sweet & Dandy’ is about the process of withdrawing yourself from negative distractions and living in the present, always remembering that you are enough,” TASH explains. “You and you alone, you do not need the world to tell you to be a certain way.”

With a title inspired by the need to slow down and re-ground, TERRA FIRMA is the work of a more confident, dynamic and experienced musician. The manifestation of a period of self-reflection in which TASH slowed down to find time for surfing, studio, family, gardening and a healthy balance from the hectic touring lifestyle that defined their existence.

“I didn’t realize that I needed to create a space and home for myself to feel like a person again,” TASH says. “I just went inward and found a really peaceful place and wrote an album, and I feel really happy with it.”

Returning to earth after the dizzying heights of success, TERRA FIRMA is the sound of a more content and grounded TASH. Spiritually, the album finds the artist reconnecting to their roots, reminding themselves who they are and what it means to be human. Musically however, its 14 tracks take root into far-reaching sonic territory.

Almost every note on TERRA FIRMA was once again composed, arranged, performed, engineered and produced by TASH. But to kick-start a new era, the solo star–for the first time–opened themselves up to collaborators, starting with a 10-day writing session with fellow ARIA-winning Australian musician Matt Corby and producer Dann Hume (Courtney Barnett, Amy Shark, Angus & Julia Stone).

TERRA FIRMA was made with a lot of effort but feels effortless. Its intoxicating grooves and hypnotic riffs are instantly inviting, but with depth that reveals its rewards the more you absorb it.

Forever thinking of future career steps, TASH has assembled a live band to bring the record to life on stage (whenever that’s safe to do so). “The new live show is everything the live show already was, plus three other musicians on the stage for a small section of the show.” And they’re already greasing the wheels to begin producing and mentoring other artists.

Keen to get back out on the road doing what they love, TASH will be performing at WOMADelaide (Australia) in March. For more information on this show, head HERE, and for information on all other 2021 touring dates head HERE.

For TERRA FIRMA though, the goal seemed simple: to make music that comes from a place that’s real and from the heart. “Because if it does, you’ll never fuck up,” TASH reflects. “I just really wanted to like the art I was putting out…I just wanted to feel better, be better, perform better, play better, sing better. To be a better musician.”

TASH SULTANA today (October 29) announced the official release date for their forthcoming sophomore album TERRA FIRMA. The highly anticipated new body of work from TASH SULTANA is set for release on February 19, 2021 on Mom + Pop Music and is available to pre-order NOW.

With a title inspired by the need to slow down and re-ground TERRA FIRMA is the work of a more confident, dynamic and experienced musician. The manifestation of a period of self-reflection in which TASH slowed down to find time for surfing, studio, family, gardening and a healthy balance from the hectic touring lifestyle that defined their existence.

“I didn’t realize that I needed to create a space and home for myself to feel like a person again,” explains TASH. “I just went inward and found a really peaceful place and wrote an album, and I feel really happy with it.”

Returning to earth after the dizzying heights of success, TERRA FIRMA is the sound of a more content and grounded TASH. Spiritually, the album finds the artist reconnecting to their roots, reminding themselves who they are and what it means to be human. Musically however, its 14 tracks take root into far-reaching sonic territory.

From the previously released evocative “Greed” to the enthralling “Beyond The Pine,” TASH departs from looped and layered jams towards meditative combinations of soul, funk, RnB, folk, rock, hip hop–you name it. “It’s Aretha Franklin meets Bon Iver meets John Mayer meets whatever,” says TASH. “It’s recognizably Tash Sultana, but deeper and more nuanced.”

Almost every note on TERRA FIRMA was once again composed, arranged, performed, engineered and produced by TASH. But to kick-start a new era, the solo star–for the first time–opened themselves up to collaborators, starting with a 10-day writing session with fellow ARIA-winning Australian musician Matt Corby and producer Dann Hume (Courtney Barnett, Amy Shark, Angus & Julia Stone).

Matt was very helpful for me at the beginning of this process, because I was experiencing writers block,” TASH explains. Together, they crafted lead singles “Pretty Lady”–an infectious tune kicking around since TASH’s busking days–and “Greed.” “They only give a shit when you make it big,TASH sings in a soul-funk examination of the corrupting influence of wealth and fame.

Corby also assisted on the richly detailed “Beyond The Pine,” in which TASH intones “I need you to save me because I can’t save myself,” and “Crop Circles,” a rumination on death disguised by its smoky, minimal piano licks and horns. “I went full jazz on that one.”

In line with today’s announcement, TASH has teamed up with fast rising Melbourne artist Jerome Farah to deliver a soul powered new single Willow Treefilled with thundering trumpets and shimmering guitar lines.

“There ain’t no fast pass up the mountain and you’ve got to clock the hours in to achieve the things you want in life,” explains TASH. “You can’t just skip the entire middle section of your journey to try and rush to the finish line. Whatever that may be for you. There is no use comparing yourself to someone else’s success. It’s your time when it’s meant to be and it’s only meant to be if you get up day and night and strive for the things you want. No one’s going to serve it to you on a golden platter, you’ve got to get it yourself.”

TASH SULTANA Releases Official Music Video For ‘Beyond The Pine’

DATE:        SEPTEMBER 23, 2020

FROM:       MARCEE RONDAN/MITCH SCHNEIDER

 
 
TASH SULTANA
RELEASES OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR
‘BEYOND THE PINE’

Australian multi-instrumentalist TASH SULTANA today released the official music video for “Beyond The Pine” on Mom + Pop Music. The ARIA award-winning musical luminary connected with fans across the globe for the video premiere on YouTube this morning.

TASH SULTANA‘s music beautifully narrates a visual masterpiece starring Australian dancers Timothy Springs and Chris Haines. Directed by renowned Sydney-based cinematographer Patrick Rohl, the video cleverly illuminates the joys and trials of an intimate relationship through the contrast of light and shade, flow and tension.

TASH offered a deeper layer of meaning to the creative behind the video, explaining that “love is yours no matter the colour, race, gender, religion, sexuality or identity. Here is a visual representation of energy fluidity.”

WATCH THE OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR “BEYOND THE PINE” HERE

Since premiering on triple j in their native Australia, “Beyond The Pine” has become the most played song at the network, received major support from DSPs globally, and has now surpassed over one million streams. TASH co-wrote this dreamy tune alongside Matt Corby and Dann Hume at their home studio in Melbourne. Of the single, TASH says “It’s a little bit of a slower, softer approach to a message from within, ‘Beyond The Pine’ is about finding solace in nature and realizing the depth of your relationship when you find your one.”

LISTEN TO “BEYOND THE PINE” HERE

Other recently released songs, “Pretty Lady” and “Greed‘” will join ‘Beyond The Pine,‘ on TASH SULTANA‘s forthcoming sophomore album, TERRA FIRMA (release date TBA).

About Tash Sultana:

To mark one of the biggest gaming title launches of the year, PlayStation®4 exclusive The Last of Us™ Part II, PlayStation Australia worked with multi-instrumentalist and global sensation acclaimed artist TASH SULTANA to re-record “Through The Valley”–the iconic track from the game’s reveal trailer that went viral in 2016. Due to overwhelming demand, the release of TASH‘s cover of “Through The Valley” is available now on Mom+Pop.
 
“This is the first time I’ve done a collab like this,” TASH says. “Usually, it’s kinda just like writing sessions with other musos but this is for a game and it’s different as it’s not my usual style to venture into so I’m completely honored to be asked to do something like this. The reaction has been amazing and it’s been great hearing all the positive messages from everyone so I wanted to make sure the song was available everywhere.”
 
The original track by U.S. blues and folk artist Shawn James is sung by lead character Ellie in The Last of Us™ Part II reveal trailer and tells a dark tale of struggle and someone who, by the grace of their own killer instinct, does not fear. The song is reminiscent of Ellie’s experience in a cruel post-pandemic world.
Patrick Lagana, Director of Marketing at Sony Interactive Entertainment Australia, said, “‘Through The Valley’ became a #1 hit in several markets when featured in the 2016 reveal trailer for The Last of Us Part II, so we were super excited with the idea of recreating this with a phenomenal Aussie talent like TASH SULTANA that truly creates a special Australian moment to mark the launch of one of our biggest titles for PS4.”
 
Matt Holmes, Executive Creative Director at Poem, said, “We’re passionate about earning attention for brands by creating ideas that earn a place in people’s lives, ideas that people will actually care about. The TLOU world is incredibly immersive and fans are genuinely emotionally invested in the characters and the story. We wanted to tap into that feeling and the crazy excitement for this sequel by using music as it’s a powerful emotional trigger and several tracks and guitar chords have become synonymous with the game. I couldn’t be prouder of the result. TASH did an incredible job in the recording and the final launch video is a cool collision of cultures that The Last of Us™ fans and music fans are loving.”
