On Sunday, May 23rd, MTV will welcome the return of its iconic Unplugged series with an intimate performance from multi-instrumentalist Tash Sultana at Chapel off Chapel in South Yarra.
Off the heels of their #1 second album, Terra Firma, released back in February this year, Tash will perform a series of eleven songs to an audience of 150 fans. The performance will see Tash make their way through their towering arrangements, performing cuts like ‘Mystik’ and ‘Pretty Lady’.
“This is a set that has never been seen. So this is the very first time and I’ve been saving all of this for this moment,” Tash said of their performance. “The best way to listen to it is to turn the light off and light a candle or incense. I want you to feel sensory overdrive by the end of the set. So dim the lights and just watch.”
Tash is the sixth Australian act to feature on MTV Unplugged Melbourne, joining previous graduates Gang of Youths, Amy Shark, DMA’S, The Rubens and Courtney Barnett.
Ahead of the release of the performance, we’re privileged to get a sneak peek at what to expect from Tash’s Unplugged debut with their performance of ‘Dream My Life Away’. Tash enlisted their friend Josh Cashman for the performance, and it’s every bit as idyllic as you’d expect. Check it out below.
