“The title of the project is taken from Donna Tartt’s ‘The Goldfinch’ and can be found in an exquisite passage which describes falling in love. The two words seem to contradict each other in a way that perfectly evokes love as a feeling that is dangerous and beautiful and painful and breathtaking all at once. So ‘Starry Ache’ encapsulates the themes and ideas of the EP really well.” – Hope Tala

‘Starry Ache’ consists of relatable storylines, sensitive soul vocals, and smooth instrumentations perfumed with a neo-soul scent. Check out Tala’s debut EP and let us know how you feel about it in the comment section below.
