Hailing from the rolling hills of the UK countryside, producer/songwriter Tutara Peak is one to watch. On the heels of his recent single with Aether, titled “Yukijo”, Peak fans the flames with this triumphant new track. Sprouted from the creative genius of Harvey Carter, his project ‘Tutara Peak’ blazed onto the scene in early 2020. Ever since then, Peak has been consistently evolving and refining his artistry; what results is a truly singular sound.
In “If”, Peak’s A1 production skills are coupled with Milan Ring’s impressive vocals. Her voice is full to the brim with soul; it commands your attention – but that’s not even the half of it! The layers of “If” run deep, as Peak’s production subsumes the listener into a vast sonic landscape. Synths palpitate and sparkle from ear to ear, while the track is embellished by syncopated vocal samples. All brought down to the ground by understated, organic percussion – a booming intermittent base reverberates through your core. Gradually, the song snowballs, crescendoing into pure ecstasy. Not to mention the track’s visceral lyrics, penned also by Peak, which explore the dizzying line between affection and yearning.
Peak reflects on what inspired the track, saying: “‘If’ was written about a young love that’s torn apart. I was reflecting on all the hopes of a relationship, to make it out of the struggle in the city/lower rungs of society, to greener pastures and to find peace. But it’s cut short – I keep that open to interpretation – but to me, the person was rushing out of the struggle, and it was cut short by death, hence why they didn’t have time to grow up together.”
All in all, this is a stellar release. Together, Peak and Ring made magic – proving themselves as mainstays in the music scene. With two supporting sold-out shows in London under his belt, this is just the beginning for Tutara Peak – and we’re buzzing to see what he whips up next.
