TATYANA Shares Cheeky And Fun New Single “Right Places”
Electro-pop artist and harpist, TATYANA, is back with new single and video, “Right Places,” that dawns an impressive new era for the dynamic producer, songwriter and performer.
On the freshly released bop, TATYANA sings irreverently over a bouncy, guitar-like synth hook and twinkling harp melodies, winkingly prompting her subject to “love me in the right places.” Co-producer Joseph Mount (Metronomy) helped fine-tune the track, resulting in a careful distillation of TATYANA’s signature sound that fuses her classical training with her keen sense for pop songwriting. “Right Places” is the kind of precisely produced, impossibly catchy pop that takes other artists their entire careers to nail.
TATYANA says, “I wrote ‘Right Places’ in 2019 and it feels good to finally put it out. At my shows, people always ask me if the main hook that underpins the song is an electric guitar, but it’s actually a synth sound I designed in Ableton. Lyrically, it’s quite an in-your-face – sexy song. I love a double entendre – “love me in the right places” could mean different things. To me, the song captures the high you feel when you meet a stranger you have undeniable chemistry with. It’s so pop and punk and fun and goes off every time I play it live.”
In the “Right Places” official video, soft pink hues light up TAYANA’s face as she gets ready to go out after a call on her lobster-shaped phone. The video is inspired by the kitschy and witchy film “The Love Witch.” Soft, sultry and sexy cuts from deep eye contact to legs rubbing gently together bring the energy levels up continuously and explodes for a final scene showing TATYANA donning a gorgeous kokoshnik (a traditional Russian crown, that’s part of the national dress), in a neon purple square, where it’s just TATYANA, her harp and her passion.
TATYANA will be supporting Charles Watson at his show at The Social in London, UK on November 23rd.
Tatyana Phillips has lived in Holland, Russia, Singapore, and Boston – where she attended Berklee College of Music on a full scholarship – before settling back in her hometown of London in 2018. The transient nature of her upbringing has certainly informed her music: from underground raves to viral YouTube covers to playing harp on tour with Neneh Cherry, there seems to be no scene that she doesn’t thrive in. Her music is a multi-faceted product of all of that experience, the kind of precisely produced, impossibly catchy pop that takes other artists their entire careers to nail. In 2020, she released her thrilling debut EP Shadow On The Wall via Sinderlyn. The self-produced collection was met with praise from tastemaker outlets like NYLON, The FADER, Office Magazine, Bandcamp, The Line of Best Fit and Crack Magazine, as well as an exclusive vinyl pressing with Vinyl Me, Please’s Rising program.
