Two summers back, Middle Eastern-born singer and songwriter Tamar Dart, or Little Strike, settled in Philly. Last summer, she released Forever Always Leaving, her first EP laced with electronic dream pop beats which concluded with a cover of Supergrass’ “Alright.”
Now, as spring is kicking in and we’re about to embark on her third summer here with us, she’s released a music video for that cover, a visual/auditory collage with “footage from real as well as dream life.”
If you’re intrigued, read her recent essay about performing, lies/truth in relation to chewing gum and how her first live solo show (in July of last year, on her birthday) was “an utter analog and digital disaster.” But she’s come a long way since then, just recently opening last Friday for Marian Hill at a sold-out Boot & Saddle show.
