Coming across excellent music organically has to be one of the most satisfying feelings. No PR blast, no jumbled email submission that someone forgot to BCC, just pure, organic discovery. Allow me to introduce you to “Dive Deep” from TIAAN. I came across this cut while browsing new singles on Spotify the other day and was stopped in my tracks by the beautiful yet haunting melodies.
“Dive Deep” is the lead single from the Australian born, LA-based songstress in which she, “details an obsessive love in a dream-like state, drawing the listener in with carefully-crafted, alliterative lyrics and a distinctive, hypnotic phrasing that reveals her innate understanding of melody.” Check it out below, and for our LA readers, be on the look out as she’s set to perform her first show there this month.
