about

Hallmarked by commanding vocals and seamless transitions between vulnerability and strength, Taylah Carroll’s music is equal parts confessional dreamy alt-rock and indie-folk. With producer Tim Harvey (Jade Imagine, Gena Rose Bruce) at its helm, Taylah Carroll’s latest single, 'I’m Not Sold', juxtaposes anxiety and self-assuredness, as it narrates the common terror of the quarter-life crisis.

Recorded at Soundpark Studios and accompanied by Jade Imagine frontwoman Jade McInally on bass, Tim Harvey on lead guitar, and Damian Meoli on drums, the third single from the Melbourne songwriter feels sonically larger and more expressive than its predecessors.

Of the track, Taylah says “I wanted this to feel like a ‘coming of age story’. The song was born out of a real fear of failure and a will to dispel the idea that there was a specific path I had to follow in order to “make a woman out of myself.”

There are parts of the song that hold a harsh and telling light up to myself, but it’s also a little slice of indignance to dish out to everyone that tells you that you can’t make it in whatever you’re pushing for."

lyrics

My sister sees through me,
I sleep too much,
Nothing seems to thrill me,
Am I losing touch?

Is this the way it goes?
This the way it goes?

I drink too much coffee,
I don’t sleep enough,
I’ve been spending my money,
to have things to hold,
But baby I’m not sold,
Baby I’m not sold…

And I’m running,
Out of things to say,
I want colour,
But I just see grey,
You did always, say that I would fail,
But baby I’m not sold,
Baby I’m not sold…

Oh pretty young thing,
This time won’t last,
I mean well by you,
The train moves fast,
Make a woman out of yourself,
Make a woman out of yourself…

And I’m running,
Out of things to say,
I want colour,
But I just see grey,
You did always, say that I would fail,
But baby I’m not sold,
Baby I’m not sold…
