We took some time out to chat to singer-songwriter and all-round mega babe Taet to chat musical inspo, fave gigs and what she’s got on the agenda for the rest of 2017…
What does a day in the life of Taet look like?
I haul myself out of bed have a big bowl of cheerios – my favourite!
I go to gym for about an hour – (if I don’t go I will be big and round haha), then I go home shower, get ready all cute then I’ll head to the studio as I’m working on my EP. I usually finish quite late but if not I’ll head to an event or try and catch food with my besties.
How would you describe your aesthetic and how does it inspire your music?
My aesthetic is based on my nature – what I like and what is around me, it’s not really thought about.
My music is inspired by what is happening in that moment and the journey that I’m on; it really represents me best
What’s the best gig you have ever played?
Probably when I did my own show. I did it at an art gallery which was cool as it was a play on my name “Tate Gallery”. I loved it! Everyone had a dope night, great vibe, good energies and the feedback was amazing. I’m just really excited to put out more music.
Who would you most like to collaborate with and why?
Drizzzzzy, From comeback season I was obsessed. I love every song he does and I love the way he writes, even though he’s this massive superstar/icon his music is really relatable.
Why do you think the relationship between fashion and music is so strong?
They go hand in hand – music and fashion transport you to a place you may not normally go or have never been, it takes people outside their comfort zone. It lets me be someone different yet me, every day.
