Tuarrah emerged from a friendship that began ten years ago on Marlborough Street in Boston. Charlie Van Kirk and Christopher Marion began collaborating shortly after they met, bonding over a mutual admiration for the music of D’Angelo, Radiohead and Björk as well as the paintings of James Whistler and John Singer Sargent. With lead vocals by an enigmatic friend who wishes to remain anonymous, Tuarrah became three. At times expansive and at others intimate, their music speaks to the great landscapes of America and to some little moments of humanity that can be found within.
Palimpsest is the third and final single from Tuarrah’s upcoming record Lying on Our Backs and it sounds amazing. I like the floating piano chords. Besides, the vocals are magical. Furthermore, I am also a fan of the unique rhythms and ethereal strings.
Lyrically, the song is very impressive. Palimpsest was written after a long afternoon of looking at paintings at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Tuarrah became fascinated by the idea that mistakes sometimes remain visible in paintings, often as a factor of the medium rather than the choice of the artist.
Tuarrah made modern art, Palimpsest is just a perfect song. Be sure to stream it as soon as possible!
