Single Review: Tarah Who? – “Swallow That Pill”

Alternative rock duo Tarah Who? has come a long way since their debut in the 2010s. With two full-length albums, three EPs, coverage everywhere from Kill the Music to The Ring Master, plus several singles marking the new decade, the band is now exceptionally known and only seem to get heavier with each release. Of the solid output of recent material, frontwoman Tarah Carpenter and drummer/backing vocalist Coralie Hervé punctuate that effort with the single “Swallow That Pill.”

Sporting up-tempo, punky energy, the song touches on the frustration of a hard worker being unappreciated and taken advantage of. Carpenter’s haunting low register works well alongside her complementary, chorus-tinged chords during the verses. Interestingly, Hervés’ drumming serves a dual role of sorts – the pacing of the song, as well as the rapid heartbeat of the song’s subject. Once the chorus comes into play, the combined heaviness and intensity of both musicians shine through in a fitting intensity only they are able to capture.

About Jake Kussmaul

I come from a family who is passionate about all things music. I learned to sing at an early age, and by 13, had my very own Fender Strat guitar. I tried my hardest at learning all that I could. Because I was born with cerebral palsy, I had to teach myself an adaptive playing style. I learned to write and record my own music, despite these difficulties. In college, I started making great use of my writing abilities by reviewing music, as well as copy editing. I guess it's best to stick with what you know, while welcoming a fair challenge at the same time.
