Oooh girl! The singer-songwriter and looping artist, Tash Sultana, just made the most baby-making cover of MGMT’s classic “Electric Feel” for Triple J’s Like A Version. The mind-blowing cover is clearly just a snippet of what her live show is like. Thankfully, she is heading out on a US tour next week so we can see for ourselves!
Tash Sultana will be in Philadelphia next Saturday, February 18th, so my fellow Philly fans can watch her slay in person. She will be playing at World Cafe Live upstairs and the super-intimate show is unsurprisingly sold-out. If you were lucky enough to get tickets the show starts at 8PM and the doors open at 7pm. Make sure you get there on time to catch fellow Australian musician Josh Cashman open the show.
Listen to both artists and check out more tour dates for their US tour below!
