Ta-ku and Wafia have confirmed that they will release a full EP of music together next month.
Titled (m)edian, the EP will drop on August 5 through Future Classic.
Having worked together in the past on both Charles Murdoch‘s Frogs and Ta-Ku’s American Girl (the latter being a stripped back take on American Boy by Estelle), the pair have proven that they have plenty of musical history and chemistry together.
In preparation for(m)edian‘s release, the pair yesterday shared their new single Meet In The Middle.
Dropping straight into a filthy groove, Ta-ku croons over a fuzzy synth line before Wafia adds some light into the dark with her own vocals. The chorus doesn’t jump out as such but rather flows on as a natural extension from the verse, with a steady, percussive pulse holding it all together.
After the introduction of keys in the bridge the song rises and falls before gently fading away, leaving listeners hanging out for just a tiny bit more. Listen below.
Wafia and Ta-ku will be performing as part of Vivid Sydney, showcasing their new material with two shows at the Sydney Opera House.
The pair will also be playing a one-off show in Perth for the State of the Art festival before embarking on a string of European dates.
See below for details.
