“And if you would join me
we’ll stop bad living
We’ll take hold of today and start forgiving us
Intentions clear, abandon fear, just hold me closer than your tears
You know we’ll feel the need to try
Real living once before we die”
——from ‘Real Living’
Two guys and an itch that has to be scratched… What happens when you wake up one day and realise David Byrne was on to something? This is not my beautiful life! Well, you buy a drumkit, plug in the acoustic guitar and stick it to the man. This is how The Dark Rays was formed. Fed up with nodding agreement to sentiment, the Dark Rays hit the rehearsal rooms of Deptford and forged a sound guaranteed to get your heart pumping.
Dario Scotti, Daniel Aquilina and Henry Colborne would like to present to you, Tara.
Tara developed their early sound down the murky corridors of Denmark Street, January 2013. After playing various bars and pits across London, Tara fancied something different. Something a bit more real.
After some time away in Nashville, Tennessee, getting into the country and the real blues, Tara arrived back into the UK, bold as ever. Tara are ready to prove themselves to the people.
Tara can promise pretty angst, melody, backbreaking backbeats and the riffs. Tara bring the Root of Rock n’ Roll. Imagine Motörhead meets Fela.
Tara have just started their first UK Tour. Nothing but a good word.
Wallace is a singer-songwriter from Lisbon.
