With her sophomore full-length Tell Me What You Miss The Most, Chicago-based singer/songwriter Tasha invites the listener to nestle in to each track, allowing yourself to be enveloped by the warmth and light. "These are swaying songs," she says of the swoonful new release. “I was inspired by a distance I felt from myself,” she continues in a press release, “the writing was kind of born from this desire to get back to an intimacy, or honesty, with myself.” 

Today's Song of the Day is accompanied by a video directed by directorial duo Coool, who share: 

“When Tasha approached us with the song, we knew there had to be flowers and there had to be dancing. It’s this pure, magical love song that, for all of us, felt like those ‘too good to be true’ moments that occur when you’re really falling for someone. It was important for us to not tell the story of the date itself, but rather the aftermath, when you’ve come home to your apartment. How can you not just want to throw yourself around the room and move your body when you feel that elated? It’s that feeling that gave us the idea to inject visual language and choreography that felt reminiscent of mid-century films like Funny Face, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and Singin’ in the Rain.”
