Early this year, emerging U.K.-based singer, producer and harpist TATYANA, released her thrilling debut EP Shadow On The Wall via Sinderlyn, that was praised by tastemaker outlets including NYLON, FADER, office, Line of Best Fit, Crack, and more. Now, she releases ‘Back In My Head’ a new single off an evolving mixtape called MELT. Like many of TATYANA’s songs, ‘Back In My Head’ is about the digitisation of romance that is accompanied by soothing, Charli XCX like, auto tune fem vocals.
From TATYANA – “’Back In My Head’ is the first track for a project I have called MELT, which will be a sort of evolving mixtape. I’ll be adding songs to it that fit a certain kind of mood I write from sometimes – darker, minimalist, more experimental. I like to try on different hats so to speak when it comes to making music and not be tethered to a linear approach.
The song itself is quite personal – I was on YouTube late one night and the algorithm posted up a video of someone I used to be involved with. A rush of memories came flooding back, and I realised how much had changed since I had stopped thinking about him. It was such an intense feeling that I just hit record in the studio at 2am, and a stream-of-consciousness lyric came out. It turned a painful moment into something beautiful.”
