Premiere: Watch Ta'sia's New Music Video 'Krill feat. ARAMINTA'

Our eclectic team of writers from around Australia – and a couple beyond – with decades of combined experience and interest in all fields.

Raised in Wagga Wagga, Ta'sia is the electronic, trip hop project of Annastasia Lucas, a producer and multi-instrumentalist (focused on tenor saxophone) who crafts hypnotic beats using MPC 2000xl and sp404 samplers.

The artist, who moves between the top end of Australia and Newcastle, has released a couple of albums as well as a 2023 collaborative EP with Ana Malibu titled 'Interlude'.

Now on the verge of releasing her new studio album, titled 'ESTA' and a celebration of woman in the music and tech industries, the focus single is titled 'Krill'.

An ode to friendship, dancing and women seen through a South Pacific lens, Ta'sia crafted the 'Krill' beat sampling vintage vinyl sounds and live instruments arranged on an analog sampler.

A chilled, luscious rhythm is married to a delightfully crisp, beautiful beat that meanders in joyous waves beaming sunny, tranquil, dusty rays that are simply stunning.

Add the angelic vocals from Naarm-based singer ARAMINTA that seemingly drift downwards from the heavens with a soothing sonic balm of lushness, the Spanish lyrics depicting how two people can dance together.

With the gorgeous brassy goodness supplied by a four-piece section melded to noodling plucked guitar tones, 'Krill' is a stupendously lavish production.

Ahead of the album's release tomorrow (20 June), today scenestr is thrilled to premiere the 'Krill' music video that was directed by Mikayla Lee. Enjoy.

"'Krill' is my favourite as it is a warm song," Ta'sia says. "One of the later beats I made on the MPC2000x, the song was easy to write for me, it just fell into place.

"ARAMINTA's vocals in Spanish speak on how it takes two to dance together. Recorded in both Newcastle and Melbourne, the track also features a four-piece brass section."

Tomorrow Ta'sia and her band will launch 'ESTA' with a Sydney show at Pleasure Club; it's free entry.

The 'Krill' music video continues the album's centre motif of celebrating women of all ages. "Set against the breathtaking landscapes of Polynesia, this piece is a homage to the grace and unity of women – a celebration of friendship," director Mikayla Lee says.

"Calling inspiration from the song concept that 'it takes two to dance', is beautifully illustrated with fun and laidback movements highlighting how true friendship should feel.

"Representing women of all ages in this narrative is crucial for our viewers. It underscores the value of inclusivity. It reminds us that every stage of life is beautiful and significant, and that our shared connections truly make us authentic and empowered.

"I hope it resonates with viewers and women as deeply as it did with us during its creation reminding everyone of the beauty and importance of these enduring bonds and love."
