Born in San Francisco to a Persian mother, Tara Priya has a truly international background.
The niece of the much lauded poet and modernist painter Sohrab Sepehri, the singer uses her base in North London as a means to mesh together eclectic influences.
New single 'One Foot Out' opens with Spaghetti Western guitars, fit for Ennio Morricone himself. Immediately casting a certain atmosphere, it provides Tara Priya with a wonderful palette to paint on.
Sitting somewhere between classic soul, trip hop and the slumped productions of J Dilla, 'One Foot Out' is a contagious, potent statement of intent.
Due to be released on November 24th, you can check out the video below:
