Tipare takes a stand with her new single 'My Decision'

Auckland based artist Tipare is pleased to announce a follow up to her previous single ‘Backbiters’, her brand new single, ‘My Decision’. ‘My Decision’ is a smouldering slow jam with a laidback reggae rhythm, belying the powerful sentiment of the lyrics and Tipare’s commanding voice. 

Written by New York based Easy Star All-Stars collaborators Ticklah and Michael Goldwasser, Tipare says she was initially attracted to the straight forward story telling.

 "I appreciated the determination and unapologetic nature of the lyrics, but I wanted to layer it with darker musical elements to emote the internal complexities that go along with betrayal."

Tipare worked with New Zealand musicians Laughton Kora to contribute additional production to the song, and Fran Kora to add haunting background vocals to bring this concept to life. The result is Tipare's unique version of resurrection from a bad relationship.

The video for 'My Decision' was shot by Russian photographer Tamara Azizian and directed by Tipare.  The result is a feminine, stylish, urban vignette featuring different pockets of Auckland to root it in its city vibe.  View the video here.

‘My Decision’ is available for purchase at Amplifier, iTunes and all good digital outlets. You can listen to the ‘My Decision’ on Soundcloud.
