Track Of The Day: Tarantina – ‘Fables’

Self-taught singer, multi-instrumentalist, producer & videographer Tarantina has released a stunning stop-motion video to accompany her new single ‘Fables’. It’s a mesmerising set of self-produced visuals – shot in her bedroom!- from this interesting new artist.

“The track is about the lies we tell ourselves; the blinkers we wear to protect us from what we’d rather ignore,” Tarantina explains. “I wrote ‘Fables’ mid-flight at high speed after jumping headfirst into a relationship that I knew wasn’t going to end well”. The single is the second track to be released from her forthcoming EP Teething, which will be released later this year.

Tarantina “blends fine art processes and pop culture with a DIY aesthetic” to make her music videos. Raised between two juxtaposing worlds – her Mother’s house filled with Portishead and Leftfield (who she’s been touring the world with this year as their lead vocalist), and the home of her father with Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett – Tarantina is the product of these opposing influences with a “staunchly avant-garde twist”.
