Matt Corby and Tash Sultana have a very natural sense of chemistry.
Creatively they're on the same plane, something they noted within a few minutes of their first studio session together.
Keeping in touch, they swap tunes, share lyrics, generally inspire one another, before deciding to give the studio another shot.
New single 'Talk It Out' is the result. A summer smash, it finds Matt Corby and Tash Sultana adding something distinctive to one another's artistry.
“I wrote the song during the sessions for ‘Rainbow Valley’, but in a different way to the rest of the album. It didn’t feel like it was a fit for the record so I revisited it with Tash recently” says Matt.
“Tash has a giant musical beast living inside of her, so I knew she could deal with whatever I threw at her. It was amazing to collaborate with someone like that, and have her throw her musical stylings over the song”.
For her part, Tash adds: “We originally started having a jam in early 2017, then life came between making music together. We always wanted to work with one another and this track came about because Matt didn't include it on ‘Rainbow Valley’. He sent it to me to fill in the blanks, and it's the first collaboration I've done with another artist that I’ve released.”
“I'm super proud of what we've done. Matt is an amazing songwriter and instrumentalist. He's also an absolutely awesome guy with a huge soul so it was a privilege to be a part of this project.”
With the carefree summer feeling it's a glorious collaboration, and for the video the duo reached out to Melbourne based animator Andrew Onorato.
The trippy, colourful results perfectly match the song, and help add another dimension to an already addictive collaboration.
Tune in now.
