Australian one-person band Tash Sultana has been steadily making their way across the U.S. this fall, wowing new audiences at every turn. On November 18th, Tash hit Terminal 5 for a highly-awaited New York City performance. The multi-talented Aussie didn’t disappoint, working through delicately layered renditions of the material on their debut album, Flow State.
This week, Tash Sultana shared a pro-shot live video of Flow State track “Pink Moon” from this month’s New York City performance. Set aside a few minutes, throw on the video, and let Tash sweep you away.

The multi-talented 23-year-old musician played all 15 instruments heard on Flow State, from guitars, bass and drums to piano, saxophone, and flute. All that skilled musicianship is buoyed by Tash’s uniquely dream-like vocals, which can evoke comparisons to Macy Gray, Norah Jones, Christina Aguilera, Chris Martin, and more, depending on the song, while still managing to sound wholly new and original. Flow State moves deftly through a variety of styles and genres, from laid-back surf jams to Lenny Kravitz-style fuzz rock and everything in between, fully showcasing Sultana’s broad spectrum of musical abilities. Even in the wake of enormous hype, Flow State assures what those in the know have been hip to for some time now: Tash Sultana is going to be one of the next big stars. Count on it.
