Blending the languid qualities of The War On Drugs or Wild Nothing, with the reverb-rinsed touches of 80s’ Springsteen and the gentle grandiosity of Arcade Fire, “A Tentação do Fracasso” is a mesmeirc offering from the rising São Paulo band Atalhos.

Tasha Shares New Track “Bed Song 1” || New Album ‘Tell Me What You Miss The Most’ Due Out 11/5 On Father/Daughter Records
Speaking on the track, Tasha says: “This is one of the first songs I wrote from the album, and came to encompass many of the feelings that I go on to continue exploring throughout the rest of the songs. It ties in some themes from the last record (solitude, bed time) while also revealing a new type of sadness and aching not often explored in my songwriting. It is a song about love ending, and wanting to linger in the imagining of it at its best, its warmest, and its most tender, while you try to let it go. It’s about reminiscing before the end has even come, relinquishing your heart so as to keep the sadness away just a little longer.”
