Multi-hyphenate Dallas Tamaira shares a soulful new single “Spider.”
The new single follows last year’s lockdown single “No Flowers” which marked Tamaira’s return to his roots as a solo artist after Fat Freddy’s Drop, of which Dallas is the founder member and vocalist, had a two month UK/European tour ground to a halt during the first COVID lockdown in March 2020. The band was forced to cancel the 14 sold-out arena shows and return home facing a largely uncertain future. Tamaira turned the potentially negative experience of self-isolation into a positive and productive time.
“Spider” represents the peaceful, slower pace of life Tamaira fell in love with during his confinement at home. Produced with friend, musician and producer Devin Abrams(Pacific Heights/Drax Project), the single late-night summer vibes, dark guitar and heavy bass contrasted with large sweeping layers of vocals are brought together with soulful piano flourishes.
Talking about the track Tamaira says, “the underlying message in the lyrics is that life can be hard sometimes and that’s ok. For some people it’s more important to see the world for how it is rather than maintaining a constant positive outlook. We are all built differently and that’s a beautiful thing. Whether you chose to be present in the now or escape reality completely, do it on your own terms and don’t let anyone else tell you how to live your life.”
“Spider” is now available on music streaming platforms.
