TATYANA – also known as @blueharpgirl to her 25k followers on Instagram – mesmerises with her meditative harp videos, and is now releasing her debut track Wild Card, with an ethereal video to accompany it.
With English and Russian parents, TATYANA grew up all over the world, living in Holland, Russia, Singapore, Boston and now London, and this ephemeral upbringing is present in her music. She describes her style of music not as a sound, but as a colour – blue; upbeat but peaceful, halcyon yet hopeful.
Her Instagram is something to marvel at, with classical harp pieces scattered amongst Frank Ocean covers and synthesised beats. Her debut single brings together all of these aspects, a celestial combination of Lorde and Christine and the Queens, this track will lull you into a soft summer-y state. You can feel this through the video as well, with glittery, delicate aesthetics, it perfectly harmonises with the track. It feels retro, yet also totally contemporary, which is an impressive feat for a debut track and video.
2020 is bringing exciting things for TATYANA, and if you can’t wait for the next track, be sure to pay a visit to her Instagram, for some quality quarantine tranquillity.
