Brand new single from Tarah Who? titled ‘Push Me’
Tarah Who?’s latest track featuring YUR MUM, “Push Me,” is available on major platforms. Tarah Who? is known for their unorthodox and non-conformist tone, and “Push Me” is their latest to communicate that message. Inspired by the 2020 Grammy’s, Tarah realized that the entire rock category and performances were absent on live TV. Feeling that a female rock band is currently overlooked in the music industry, Tarah set out to write a song with YUR MUM that is meaningful to both bands but also all of the hard-working independent musicians trying to get attention and the honor of winning a Grammy award.
Malacoda releases a new video of the keyboard solo in their brand new track “Beaten Path” which was performed by Gabriel Guardiola of Immortal Guardian
Malacoda adds – “When we worked on this EP this song was missing something. Jeramie had the idea to reach out to his buddy in Immortal Guardian to rip a keyboard solo on this track and Gabriel’s performance really brought this song to another level! We haven’t had keyboard solos since 2016’s Ritualis Aeterna, so it was cool hearing one again on a Malacoda track!”
