"Like Certainty" moves with restrained momentum. Sounds collide and roll to a stop, then others glide effortlessly past.

You can download this now via Bandcamp, and her new LP The Quiet Hours will arrive in 2015, not a moment too soon.
Ascending heartbreak powerfully sung, "Graveyard" is a new track from Melbourne-based Tanya Batt, and it’s reassuring to watch it dance in and out of the highest clouds. Last year she released her Atlas EP, and you can buy that here. Be sure to listen to even more of her music via her Soundcloud.
