Hope Tala is a 20-year-old singer-songwriter from Bristol, London. Not too long ago, she released a lovely single, entitled, “Blue”.
Hope Tala – “Blue”
“You are like broken ribs, you are scratched up skin. You sleep softly tonight, don’t know the pain I’m in, you are a starry ache, can’t decide if you’re cruel. But it’s better to be burnt by the sun than to be chased by wolves.”
“I wanted the subject matter—the haunting nature of unrequited love—to really manifest itself in the listener’s head through a combination of metaphor in the lyrics and stripped back production in the music.”
The artist’s influences include Lauryn Hill, D’Angelo, and Shakespeare. That combination culminated in a unique lyricism and sound that encapsulates aspects of neo-soul, rap, and lyric poetry.
In conclusion, Hope Tala is a promising talent. Therefore, we recommend adding her “Blue” single to your personal playlist.
