Taurie is a multi-faceted, multi-talented star in the making. Still only 23, she displays the personal wisdom and artistic maturity of someone much older and is fondly referred to as an ‘old soul in a young body’ by her peers and friends alike. Now this ‘old soul’ has recently released her new single Aesthetics – out now and available across all streaming platforms. Taurie spoke with The Fountain about the track and wider plans.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Aesthetics?
Reception to Aesthetics has been overwhelmingly great! It is an easy to listen song, soft voice delivering the lyrics, and forces a smile as it transcends the listener to a ‘happy place’. I am so humbled by the reception and the downloads from Spotify and other outlets. The ‘DistributeKings’ downloads have gone past 356,000 and almost a million views on the same site. YouTube views have increased to almost 60,000 views in just a month. FM radio jocks across the countries have expressed fondness for it as they even get requests from their listeners. For a new artist, these numbers have exceeded my expectations and can only get better.
TF: How would you sum up the track in one sentence?
Aesthetics brings a feel-good summer vibe track, meant to be a temporary but memorable escape from the current stress the world is enduring today.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release?
I just wrapped up my first virtual show in October. A Christmas single is in the works to be released towards the end of November. A fantastic single is headed for an early spring release which will kick off the summer of events that I cannot wait to experience!
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
Tough question since the stage is my home! I started performing at my family living room at a very young age, and shifted to small open mics in local spots before bracing myself to try out for a virtual show this past October. Today, I am open to any stage anywhere in the world so long as I can bring the experience that people yearn for – an escape from the heavy sadness, stress and frustration. This is what I want my music to symbolise – an escape.
