Described as “an incredible soulful voice” by Andrew Marston of BBC Introducing and “a teenage firecracker” by Hot Music Love, UK-based singer-songwriter Tazmin is certainly turning some heads. Raised in China, Tazmin began her entertainment career at a young age singing in talents shows, playing in school covers bands, performing on radio and television, and working as a child model for brands like Disney. In 2015, she placed in the National Final of Teenstar UK and went on to perform at various festivals such as Livestock, Worcester Music Festival, Big Family Festival and Woofest. The latest addition to her discography is her single ‘Nine More Lives’.
The follow-up to her well-received single ‘Tokyo After Dark’, Tazmin embraces a heavier pop sound in the single ‘Nine More Lives’. Greatly influenced by the work of Nile Rodgers, Tazmin uses a catchy hook as the opening line grabbing you from the first second. While she uses her music as an outlet to create awareness of topics like climate change, mental health and gender equality, ‘Nine More Lives’ does not focus on a particular issue; however, this does not mean the content lacks substance or depth. Instead, Tazmin fills the single with a message of optimism, positivity and hope saying that every person deserves a second chance – just like a cat that has nine lives.
Upbeat and buoyant, ‘Nine More Lives’ is an instantly feel-good track, but the bold vocals add an extra something to the mix. Influenced by dynamic artists like Jessie J and Dua Lipa, Tazmin’s vocals have a prominent, arresting quality demanding attention. Sonically, ‘Nine More Lives’ has a head-bopping quality as a flowing track, but it is Tazmin’s distinctive vocals that effortlessly take the lead. Addictive, entrancing and engaging, ‘Nine More Lives’ is a sensational pop single you can have on repeat – even if you’re not a big fan of pop music.
