TARINI - Do you Wanna Dance?
Tarini is a new Australian music artist and she has just released an ambitious alt R&B pop track that is sure to attract a lot of attention.
Do You Wanna Dance adopts some contemporary R&B and trap characteristics and merges them with a shiny yet evocatively personal pop sense, utilising a powerful array of elements to create an enchanting, alluring musical mood.
Beginning sparsely, with Tarini’s marvellously self-assured vocal, the song transforms into a sensual aural sound scape, with a solid silky groove that picks up from the centre and leads the melodic sway until the vocal-layered finale. This is pop with interesting tones, subtle yet quite dense with a sense of intent and assuredness. The song’s lyric is playful, and the title’s almost ironic tilt challenges the listener while caressing them: blending drawn down beats with cool synth touches and tasteful musicianship and programming.
As Tarini has said about the origins of Do You Wanna Dance, ‘I wrote this song in my car. I was really overwhelmed and consumed by a situation one of my good friends was stuck in. It’s about the kind of romance where you long so deeply for someone and regardless of how beautiful the actual connection between you and this person is, this said person is always pulling you and the relationship into a negative space and complicating things.’
‘‘Do You Wanna Dance is a satisfying new take on the genre, maintaining a sense of authenticity via the personal lyric yet projecting a universality also.
