We say

At the end of last year, we introduced you to 19 year old South African singer Tatum and her gorgeous debut BrokenHaving recently signed to Primary Talent following the success of her debut and tastemaker praise from the likes of Clash, Earmilk and Wonky Sensitive among others, she is now back with this sumptuous single. With its melodic minimalism allowing Tatum’s shadowy vocal to take centre stage, Fever delves into the realms of a toxic relationship with its weighty lyricism. It’s a dark ode, utterly beautiful and gloriously delivered that recalls Lorde and Lana Del Rey at their finest. Early support at streaming platforms has come from Spotify (SA NMF, SAlt), Apple Music (New Music Daily SA, Alt CNTRL, SA Indie) and Deezer (New South Africa). Perfect for sync opportunities and those moody playlists, it once again shows Tatum's undeniable talent as a songwriter and artist. Majestic and intimate dark pop gold.
