With bouncing organ chords, TAROT leaps into an existential dive into their mind. As the first single from their debut album planned for release in May 2022, “Iridescent” gives a taste of their pop, indie, and even futuristic vibes. With an almost intergalactic quality, this collaboration with their production partner Tate Gardner carves an upbeat path through the stars.
“I wonder why I’ve always looked up to the sky,” TAROT opens, setting the stage for an out-of-this-world experience. With organ pops shifting percussive energies, they build a soundscape that’s both cosmic and intimate.
The drums, at times rapid and driving, like a cloud of stars or nascent thoughts, sometimes recede like empty patches or moments of Zen. “Driving through space and time, I recognize there’s something on the other side.”
The deep dive into this existential state allows us to reflect on our own perspective on these wonders of life, the universe, and everything. With bright, shimmering timbres, we’re invited into this positive space to experience TAROT’s perspective while considering our own. “I get the message don’t leave me hanging,” they chime in. We’re in this crazy world together.
