Introducing T Scarlett, who just dropped an incredible debut single, Can't See
The rather beautiful video clip it comes with doesn't hurt either.
Brisbane-based artist T Scarlett has burst out of the blocks with his debut single, Can't See, a emotive piece of indie-electronica that reminds us of a time when everyone was trying to be The Kite String Tangle a couple of years ago. Which isn't to say this is some sort of lame knock-off - far from it - but we've missed the emotional brand of indie-tronica that T Scarlett is completely owning on track #1. And it feels like he's got plenty he wants to share with the world too: "T Scarlett was born out of my love for sharing experience through music. There are so many moments in my life where music has inspired and resonated with me; I want to share that with others. The music, lyrics and videos chronicle my reflections of life; looking back at your own experiences or experiences of others around you."
When you drown in a sea of music emails on a daily basis, it's rare for something to really reach out and grab your attention, but this did in spades, so we sent him a few questions to find out more:
Tell us about yourself?
I’m a simple man. Three things…Music, good food and relationship.
What kinda tunes we talkin’?
I’m pretty much always writing music… If I could sum up the vibe I’ve been channelling lately in three words… Introspective, floating, optimistic.
My process changes pretty regularly…sometimes I’m writing a song on guitar focused on chords and lyrics (adding production later). Other times I’m getting straight into the production and songwriting at the same time. Mostly, I’m a big fan of collaboration and love bouncing my ideas off other people. I’m fortunate to have heaps of talented friends and musicians around me. Whatever the process, I try to not over think it and just let the music flow.
Can you tell us about your new single, Can’t See?
This song is written from the perspective of two different people reflecting on a life changing moment. One is an optimist and the other a sceptic. A friend who invested significant amounts of time into their passion… Only to find the outcome wasn’t attainable because of circumstances outside of their control.
Any shows coming up?
I’m currently developing my live show, but I don’t have any dates booked in at the stage. I’ll definitely be playing shows in 2019 and beyond.
What’s the rest of the year have in store?
I’ve got some more fun things on the way! Maybe there’s a cover of Joy Division's Disorder and a live acoustic video of Can’t See? Maybe there’s not.
Where can we hear more of your music?
