Tierra Whack Comes Up With “Wasteland” Listen
Tierra Whack comes through with a haunting reflection of the single life.
Tierra Whack continues to deliver new music, this time dropping off “Wasteland” for the masses. Taking to a smooth, resonant organ progression, Whack sets the tone with a soulful dose of melody.
Her opening refrain is immediately infectious, a testament to her versatility as a songwriter. “Chilling in the hills, hills have eyes,” she sings, backed by an eerie, alien harmony. “Can’t be seen with you, you don’t match my fly.
” A slick bassline accentuates Whack’s delivery, which reveals an impressive mastery of cadence. Not only that, but the verse’s clever melodic structure proves that Whack is approaching instrumentals with a noted vision, rather than simply flexing her technical prowess.
In some ways, “Wasteland” is a simple ditty, lovely in its delivery and warm in its musical tone. In others, it is haunting in its own self-imposed loneliness, a theme betrayed by the song’s title. The vibe is open to interpretation, so draw your own conclusion. In the meantime, enjoy Whack’s consistent generosity, as “Whack History Month” continues in full bloom.
