The five-city Black List tour will see Taska Black hit some of the hottest small-room venues for an intimate experience like no other. Get lost in the primitive drum work and infectious synths of “No Paradise” below and catch Taska Black on TheBlack List tour this fall.
When I came up with the song I was thinking about what it means to “be yourself”. Is it just a collection of thoughts, decisions and values that you decided to stick with and let them represent you as a person? ‘No Paradise’ reflects on how we chase our goals to maybe never reach the feeling of accomplishment, at least that’s how I feel sometimes. I haven’t released an instrumental-driven track like “No Paradise” in quite sometime so it feels liberating to be able to release something experimental like to contrast some of the vocal driven songs that people know me for” – Taska Black
Following his stunning single “Lead Me Back” from bitbird’s recent Gouldian Finch 3 compilation, label head San Holo is back with his next single “Lost Lately.” Bright and layered with lush synths and melodies, “Lost Lately” strikes a near-perfect balance between relatable lyrics that will resonate with fans and a nostalgic soundscape that breathes hope back into the listener. Catch San Holo tonight at Red Rocks Amphitheatre and stream “Lost Lately” below.
Taska Black has continued to indulge his beliefs, ideas, and emotions into each of his songs. Doing so in such a beautiful manner, his discography is one that’s built of compelling and vibrant records. As the producer seeks artistic fulfillment with every release, his latest single “Backwards Love” delivers a powerful message that is worth hearing. Enlisting the vocal prowess of TRACE, the two artists link up for an eccentric record that’ll melt right into your heart. Flipping the EDM acronym to describe his emotional dance music, “Backwards Love” just does that. Stream Taska Black and TRACE’s new single “Backwards Love” below.
When I was in the studio, I remember wanting to write something about someone not deserving of my love. I wrote this with a fellow writer, Solly, and we kind of were tossing words back and forth about the feelings I was going through and when we came up with the phrase “Backwards Love”, it kind of just jumped out that we could flip the words ironically around and it still makes incredible sense. It’s about feeling off about someone when you want to feel on. It’s about getting what you give, and if you don’t give it right, you can’t and won’t get it right. There’s a sense of proclaiming self-worth in “Backwards Love” that is super important for me to share with both men and women. I hope that the message of the song itself is an anthem people can start believing in. –
