Yung Tzar aka Goldbatman and Paul Conrad’s share impressive single ‘Solange’
ARIA winning producer Tim Carr, better known as goldbatman, and Aussie singer Paul Conrad have teamed up as YUNG TZAR, and their first single ‘Solange’ perfectly represents their ethos: to cut through the bullshit and deliver their take on life.
The duo also co-run Reel Deep Records, a label dedicated to helping emerging artists thrive through low initial costs and protecting them from the pitfalls that plague the industry.
The track has a moody hip-hop atmosphere with dark synth pads and methodical percussion. The vocals switch between hard-hitting rapping in the versus and soulful singing in the chorus, giving the track a nice dichotomy of sound. The production is minimal yet has a strong presence: the verses are sparse yet strong, and the chorus soars with layers of vocals and synths that create a solid hook.
‘Solange’ is a refreshingly real single and a good proof of concept for Yung Tzar – as a duo priding themselves on being genuine they’ve brought that concept along perfectly.
