She is not so good in the promo, or in making experimental pop/post-grime/r&b. Meet Tirzah.
Name: Tirzah Mastin.
ASL: 30. Woman. London.
Promo run, so it is not Tirzahs strongest side. There are only two photos on her Instagram, she remains, in general, remarkably low key and in her rare interviews confession they have no musical ambitions. And yet popelt half hipsterland to her debut album, Devotion, to hear, that on August 10, finally appears. In 2013 and 2014 she released already two excellent ep’s, of which the minimalist antidansnummer I’m Not Dancing to a modest hit that became.
My music is not big and daring. You don’t need to be loud to make a step forward
In the meantime, as Tirzah become a mother and she went to work as a designer at a printing company – still her day job. Afterworken she does by the boundaries of experimental pop, post-grime and r&b to search. The first single of the album sets the bar already high. Tirzahs warm, somewhat languid voice over rippling beats of Gladly the ideal track to 65 bpm to obtain a London clubnacht.
The secret weapon of Tirzah is called Mica Levi, the musician and producer behind award-winning soundtracks like that of Under the Skin, and Jackie. The two got to know each other at the music school where at the age of thirteen Tirzah harp learned to play. Allegedly was Levi seriously impressed when her girlfriend for the first time heard singing. ‘Suddenly proved to be my girlfriend, with whom I am constantly talking to someone, such a great voice’, she told Pitchfork.
Seventeen years later, the two still intense together. So intense that they each affectionately known as Taz, and Meeks, and Tirzah it insists that Tirzah is not soloartiest, but a joint project is: “I” m doing it because I like doing it with my mate.’
A random quote: ‘My music is not big and daring. You don’t need to be loud to make a step forward.’
Soon to be seen as: between compositions called ‘ undergroundschijven and nineties guilty pleasure-r&b.
