Tawny K finds her power in new single ‘Millennial Woman’
Since her breakthrough featuring on Nick Hart’s 2012 track ‘Believe’, Tawny K – born and raised in Adelaide – has been continuing to deliver music that spans pop, R&B, electronic and more.
She dropped her debut album soon after, and 2019’s ‘Listen Up’ raked up over 100,000 views on YouTube and 100,000 plays on Spotify.
‘Millennial Woman’, built on dramatic, soaring synths and layered percussion, was produced at Adelaide’s Fat Trax Studios with Matthew Williams, a long-time collaborator of Tawny’s. The song’s master engineer is Martin Pullan, who described the song as “flippin’ epic!”
“Dusty Springfield, James Bond and Phil Spector all rolled into one,” Pullan said.
‘Millennial Woman’ promises to be her most expressive and dynamic single to date, delivering an R&B infused anthem that tirelessly champions women’s empowerment.
Built on a sharp cinematic sound that sees dramatic synth tones firing across waves of nuanced percussive beats, ‘Millennial Woman’ is built to inspire, creating a unique, contemporary sound that takes hold and refuses to let you go.
As the instrumentals rise and flow, Tawny delivers a bold, confident vocal performance, delivering lines with a powerful refrain that matches the impact of the lyrics themselves.
Tawny said that like most songs, this new one was “evolutionary”.
“The ideas come over days and weeks,” she said. “I sat with friends and acquaintances and listened to their stories. I drew on events happening around me.
“It was the hope that one day things would change and be better.”
