A meditative rock exploration of “ghosting” and its role in modern society, “Digital Void” is a new track from Tarita, an artist based in Chennai, India. Also a scientist by day, Tarita’s musical beginnings came at the age of 20, working with various cover bands across the UK and Poland. Tarita’s songwriting re-emerges after an 18-year hiatus, exploring a very modern topic with “Digital Void.”
Hazy guitar trickling embraces a lushly inviting soundscape, traversing seamlessly into a calming vocal presence that depicts a sort of “vanishing into the void,” in a technological sense. Lyrical references to “the act of leaving love behind,” and an ensuing “digital void,” coincide with a multi-layered vocal power and anthemic guitar soaring; there’s a timeless appeal apparent, evoking a classic psych-rock feeling that coincides with a modern singer/songwriter shine. “Digital Void” is a powerful showcase in songwriting from Tarita, offering a poignant lyrical lens alongside a stirring rock sound that deftly balances mellowness and soaring nostalgia.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
