HUSH HUSH BIZ SINGLE REVIEW
I’m In Love With You
In 2021 emerging Australian music artist Tamara Shamini released Exclusive, a contemporary pop-focused EDM track with a typically high-energy feel and a lyric that explored an amusing but a rather dark aspect of human behaviour—low tier snobbery and peer group pressure. Tamara has now turned her attention to a noticeably different genre—contemporary country—and the result merely reveals the diverse range of her musical talent and ambitions. Tamara is an internationally award-winning performer, singer-songwriter, influencer, and model whose music has attracted worldwide radio airplay in Australia, Asia, Europe and North and South America. The emerging singer-songwriter has also featured in numerous TV, radio and press outlets in Malaysia, Sri Lanka, England, and Australia. With over 3 million views on YouTube, Tamara Shamini’s new track follows her previous releases, which comprise seven singles and two albums, including the 2020 release Sounds Underground. As Tamara has said about her creative goals and ambitions, ‘I hope to be able to continue reaching out and touching people’s lives in some way. Music is a great form of therapy.’ The therapeutic nature of Tamara’s new track is perhaps apparent, a personal reflection that perfectly suits the genre.
I’m in Love With You is Tamara Shamini’s first foray into country and was recorded with renowned Australian country musician and producer Simon Johnson (Troy Cassar Daley, Amber Lawrence, Adam Harvey) at Hillbilly Hut on the NSW Central Coast. The straight-ahead groove is accompanied by a smooth, muted musical backdrop, tracing Tamara’s delicately poised vocal performance with sustained use of dynamism and shared coherence. In one way, I’m In Love With You is as quintessentially country-sounding as the title suggests, moving through vulnerability and reflection with subtlety and effortless aptitude. Although it marks a distinct change in styles for the young singer-songwriter, I’m In Love With You is no less effective for it, ultimately revealing the breadth and depth of her artistic abilities.
