TAAHLIAH has announced the upcoming release of her debut EP.
‘Angelica’ will be out on May 28 via London-based label untitled (recs).
To herald the news, she has released the EP’s lead single ‘Never Lose’. Featuring Spent, ‘Never Lose’ is a hard hyperpop-esque techno beat that muses gender fluidity and messing with binaries.
As a whole, ‘Angelica’ takes its lead from TAAHLIAH’s debut single ‘Brave’, a soft and squeaky clean hyperpop track. Now tender and emotional, now hard and declamatory, it’s a lesson in experimental pop production.
