We have long known that a girl can do equally well anything a guy can do. If not better. What Tarah Who? proves is that she leaves most guys standing when making raucous, rebellious, raw, and rocked-out music.
Tarah Carpenter is a girl on a mission to kick up a sonic storm, to leave her mark on the musical landscape, and she, joined here by Laura Chevalier, does just that by taking music influences from broad and diverse sources, everything from ’70s punk to ’80’s alt-rock to ’90’s grunge to deliver their salvos of raw energy and deft and poignant lyricism. And she does that and then some.
Like her previous single, Manners, Royal Knight is an explosive anthem, a rabble-rousing rallying cry, a call to rock’ roll arms for those who think the musical landscape has become too safe, mainstream, too lacking in bite and personality.
No one could ever accuse Tarah Who? of lacking bite or personality. Of course, they could try, but I prefer to avoid being in their shoes when they do!
