A pairing that I’m surprised hasn’t happened before simply because it makes an insane amount of sense, Matt Corby and Tash Sultana have linked up to produce a dreamy track, ‘Talk It Out’.
Both Matt Corby and Tash Sultana are deeply talented multi-instrumentalists who absolutely bloody love to have a jam sesh, so it’s only natural that they’d meld their creativity together int his way, which I can only assume happened on some other level of existence before traversing into our mortal realm in the form of track of complementing voices, warming brass, silky basslines, jazzy percussions, and jangly guitars.
Easily a collab that we definitely didn’t realise we needed, and probably as do not deserve, but it’s here and it’s happening and we are very thankful for it.
‘Talk It Out’ was a track that Matt Corby had originally penned for his latest album, Rainbow Valley, but knew it didn’t quite feel finished without someone else’s touch on it. Much like the rest of his album, Matt plays every instrument on ‘Talk It Out’ except for Tash’s guitar work.
Tash has a giant musical beast living inside of her, so I knew she could deal with whatever I threw at her. It was amazing to collaborate with someone like that, and have her throw her musical styling’s over the song.
It’s also the first-ever track that Tash Sultana has released as a collab with someone else when she typically creates a whole soundscape on her own with complex loops and layers of guitar noodling, trumpets, percussion, and effects. She said that jamming and working with Matt has been an “absolute privilege.”
He sent [Talk It Out] to me to fill in the blanks, and it’s the first collaboration I’ve done with another artist that I’ve released. Matt is an amazing songwriter and instrumentalist. He’s also an absolutely awesome guy with a huge soul so it was a privilege to be a part of this project.
Check out the fuzzy, bluesy track from Matt Corby and Tash Sultana below (and add it to all your playlists), and just soak in it for a bit, ‘cos it’s like sitting in the gentle warm sun on a late spring afternoon when the air smells sweet and it’s acceptable to laze in it all with a wine in your hand.
