Single Release: Tiana Khasi – Nuketown
Australian jazz vocalist and songwriter Tiana Khasi releases official debut single Nuketown via Soul Has No Tempo. Well known for her soulful vocals on tracks from The Kite String Tangle, Sampology and Golden Vessel, Khasi steps into her own as a solo artist with a mature, jazz infused sound which feels both wonderfully nostalgic, and refreshingly modern.
An effortless product of a collaborative, improvised session with producer Sampology and bassist, Sam Maguire, Nuketown boasts lush stacks of vocal harmonies which were looped and arranged on the spot, alongside live Rhodes, bass guitar, drum samples.
“At the time of writing Nuketown, I was processing the end of one too many toxic relationships in which my strength was underestimated. The song gave me a chance to have a more confrontational conversation embellished by a tender soundscape of strings, hushed vocals and ethereal synths.
Whilst working on the track, I vividly recalled the footage of old nuclear testing sites set up as 1950’s neighbourhoods. In hindsight, this contrasting imagery represented how something picturesque and perfect can be a smokescreen for something more destructive, inevitably imploding into beautiful chaos” – Tiana Khasi
Nuketown is my gentle way of saying “You were silly for thinking you could cross me twice. Thanks for the experience, now kindly fuck off and prepare for your self-inflicted demise.”
