t l k is Tara's producer and vocalist moniker. Her sound nests in the ‘melantronic’ subgenre, shaped by Bristol’s improvisation scene and manifested in her introverted moments. Transcendent vocals and intricate sound design are layered with ambient instrumentals, sub infusions and heavy drum beats.

The debut t l k single, Frame Of Ted, was released in Nov 2020. The tracks form a sonic expression of human friendship, departure and identity. Frame Of Ted takes shape around one improvised vocal take, embedded in a pool of soft piano and orange peel, with instrumental textures from Snazzback's Lyrebird (Dave Sanders) and Bethany Stenning of Stanlæy. The single includes two tracks: Frame Of Ted and its introduction, Big Box Of Something. Released 16/11/20.

Frame Of Ted has since appeared on the radio in the UK and Europe, including London's Soho Radio, Manchester's Reform Radio, and Lisbon's Oxigénio FM. It also had a spin at Uebel und Gefährlich, Hamburg, via live-streamed mix set, [sic]nal, and has recently been playlisted on Spotify by Bristol's Saffron Records.
