Combining elements of electronic, industrial, pop and goth with a consistent stream of bewitching visual content, Oakland, California’s Taara Tati aka Metal Mother garnered the interest of publications such as Vice, Vogue, Bust, BlackBook, USA Today, MTV since the release of her debut album Bonfire Diaries in 2011 and her sophomore record Ionika in 2013. Now, following up the attention-grabbing video for the Bonfire Diaries track “Shake” is another epic clip, this one for “Mind_Off” from Ionika.
Of the clip, directed by Elia Vargas and premiered today via Noisey, Tati says, “This story exists in black, dense, empty space. A void. Cult dancers and future-spun techno clans surge in new warriors and new lyfe. We are privileged to this strange moment in this strange space and what we learn is more about what does and does not happen rather than why it is happening. Strange battles, strange visions, strange love.”
In addition to the release of her new video, Tati will also release some new work as part of her contribution to the new album by The Glitch Mob. Tati’s vocals appear on the song “Becoming Harmonious,” from the Los Angeles-based band’s new album Love Death Immortality, scheduled for release tomorrow.
Tati’s own records have arrived courtesy of her experimental arts collective Post Primal, a multi-media party crew that’s been recognized as a valuable platform for Oakland’s bourgeoning art scene. She has also begun work on a music video for the Ionika track “Omens,” and remixes of “Mind_Off” (by Blvck Jeans) and another album cut “Cardiac Blossom” (by Sweet Anomaly) are coming soon.
With her intricate composition style, enigmatic vocal layering, quirky piano melodies, and distorted synth lines, Metal Mother casts an arcane, provocative, and sometimes deranged sound. Much of her content is inspired by travels to ancient pagan sites and it comes through in many of her lyrics and songs. Mix that with the influences of the industrial surroundings in Oakland, a devout interest in occult relevancy, and a futurist’s knack for not blending in, and you have Metal Mother.
