Tarah Who? Discloses the Release of a New Track and Video, “Toast to the Brave”
(Los Angeles, CA) May 30, 2022 - If there’s one thing that Tarah Who? is known for other than their profound skillset no matter the featured subject is, it’s their raw and heartfelt performance. Just in time for Memorial Day, they have publicly announced the release of their second track for 2022, titled “Toast to the Brave.” This three-and-half minute rock ballad was co-produced by Jason Orme and Tarah herself and is all set to come out via major streaming platforms on June 17.
Directed by Javier Caudillo, “Toast to the Brave” is inspired by a holiday traditionally celebrated called Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead), which originated in Mexico. Although associated with the Western Christian observances of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, it is much less solemn and is portrayed as a holiday of joyful celebration rather than mourning.
A perfect blend of emotive, explosive vocals, crashing drums, and surging electric guitars, “Toast to the Brave” conveys a few impactful events in 2021. The first verse was influenced by the Indonesian submarine that sank in April 2021. Prior to the tragic submerge, the sailors had posted a video of the crew singing an Indonesian hit song calmly with an acoustic guitar. It was impressive knowing there was no longer a solution, but they accepted their fate wholeheartedly.
Tarah then talks about her friend’s story in the next verse. Always wearing a happy face, no one knew he is undergoing a sad circumstance at home. Despite his parents having life-threatening conditions, he strives for resiliency and strength.
The final verse gives a glimpse into Quintin Phillippe Jones’ execution. He was sentenced to death and spent 20 years on death row with 23 hours a day in solitary confinement. Asking for clemency, Jones begged, “I know you don’t know me. I’m writing this letter to ask you if you could find it in your heart to grant me clemency so I don’t get executed on May 19. I got two weeks to live, starting today.” Knowing that someone has scheduled your death is indeed excruciating.
