Tanja tells us about her five all time favourite tracks that have influenced her over the years.

This Mortal Coil – Song to the Siren

This is such a beautiful song, a masterpiece. Like a spell in a fairytale or a place somewhere in a dream that can’t be really grasped but plays the strings of your heart in such a skilful manner, that you wonder if it’s real or not.

Chairlift – Crying in Public

I really like the sound and visual aesthetics of this band. Their music is tender, energetic and sensitive. Even though it’s well produced and all, it feels very DIY in a good way, they kept their autonomy, even when their band became bigger. 

Lamp 回想 – 1998

Lamp is a band from Tokyo and I really love their compositions and vibe. In fact I contacted them to collaborate on a few songs with me. We played shows together in Tokyo, I can’t express enough how deeply I’m amazed by their musical skills.

Hiroshi Yoshimura – View from my window

Is considered a pioneer of ambient music in Japan. I’ve been listening to a couple of his sublime records, mainly late 80s, early 90s. It’s so magical, the soundscape is rich and deep. This is one of the songs but it’s hard to pick just one song, better to listen to an entire album to get into the vibe.

Eyedress – Manila Ice

Eyedress is an artist from the Philippines. I really like his raw and honest manner of doing music. His blend of different styles is very personal, and it sort of reminds me that the genre is a bit less important – to me at least – than the intention and way of expressing it.
