In our lives, music tends to play a multi-faceted role where it can do things like help you connect with those around you. But at the same time, it can be used as a powerful tool for self-reflection and healing -- and often, this is when we need music the most. The latter is where we find the Mallorcan producer TÂCHES with his recent release Lessons In Loss on Glitter Cowboy
Recently, the young producer went through one of the hardest experiences anyone can go through. In a Facebook post from yesterday, TÂCHES talks candidly around the focus of this EP, stating, “Since I lost my father in June, life is very different these days. Not necessarily on the outside, but it’s certainly a whole new world on the inside looking out. I chose to dedicate the first half of this new EP to him, as a tribute to his wonderful and missed spirit.”
We are fortunate to be premiering an original from the first half of the record. It is poignantly titled Fallen Bird and I could only surmise that TÂCHES is referring to his father in the piece. Throughout its entirety, TÂCHES manages to create a magical, almost unsettling mood that makes one feel weightless and grounded simultaneously. As if you were actually watching a bird fall out of the sky, taking in all its majestic beauty while being helpless to stop its inevitable crash towards earth. If I had to guess, there are probably a lot of parallels from this imagery and what TÂCHES most likely experienced with his father earlier this year. Our hearts go out to him and we wish him the best in dealing with his loss.
