Letting no time go to waste after her debut single Motion Sickness, emerging talent Tara Jam is back with yet another tune, Invade My Space, that comes alongside a stunning music video starring the artist. Bringing together trap and pop aesthetics, Motion Sickness saw massive success for a debut, having amassed over 500k views on YouTube and over 300k streams on Spotify.
Invade My Space is yet another showcase of Tara Jam’s uncompromising artistic vision, seeing her also shoot and creative-direct the impressive artwork herself. The tune is a change of pace in comparison to Motion Sickness, driven by analog-sounding synths and groovy percussion that create the perfect space for Tara Jam’s soothing vocal performance to shine through.
“Invade My Space is a song about emotional, physical, and psychological space needed from oneself or another figure—I want it to be open to interpretation,” explains Tara Jam. “I wrote this song while crammed at the back of a van in rural Nepal on my way to Kathmandu city from The Hospital and Rehabilitation Center for Disabled Children (HRDC) (I highly recommend checking out the inspiring work they do). On that trip, I was able to find space in the hollowness of the intermountain basins and valleys from the swarming streets of the densely populated capital. This range of landscape and environment allowed me to discover that even in the most congested of cities, I can make room to breathe. I had the privilege of taking a break from the overwhelming hustle and bustle and of being reminded of the luxury and significance of protecting your energetic field.”
