The latest groovy single “Greed” released by award-winning Australian artist Tash Sultana, is a prime example of soulful music that carries a message. Not only through its lyrics, but through the synchronization of melodic sounds that transports the listener into a deep state of relaxation.
Introducing the track is a crisp and clean jazzy guitar, infused with a strong and punchy bass line. The drum centres on evenly timed rim shots. The combination of the jazz riffs with Sultana’s soft, indie vocals without a doubt glimmers with traces of Mac DeMarco’s unique style and energy.
This song speaks to the listener with the lyric “They only give a shit when you make it big” which is the key hook of the track. It explores the concept of “how people change around you change when you achieve some sort of success”, which is meaningful to anyone who has experienced a person who previously wanted nothing to do with them, climbing back the second they spot a bit of success.
What I love about this song, is whilst the subject matter is pretty dark, there’s this uplifting essence to the production which creates this dynamic juxtaposition demonstrating the joy of this success as well as the downside of it all.
The infusion of jazz, funk and indie genres in one track is like eating food which creates a sudden outburst of different flavours in your mouth. And that my friends, is what I call, highly addictive. So, listen to “Greed” by Tash Sultana today, and follow her on social media to stay updated on all upcoming projects.
