Choosing to forgo her surname, Dublin-based singer Tara specialises in big pop music; think Foxes and her latest single ‘Let Go For Tonight’. The accompanying press release for Tara’s single ‘Stars’, meanwhile, references Sia, Delilah, Corinne Bailey-Rae and Shaekspear’s Sister. In a bio similar to Liza Flume, Tara hails from Australia, choosing Dublin as a home because of her dad’s roots here, apparently. Her band is completed by Anthony McMahon, Paul Flood 
and Ally Donald, and ‘Stars’ is Tara’s debut single, built around some big lungs and even bigger choruses. “Everybody said they’d never leave me behind, but they did,” she sings, soundtracking the experience of emigration. ‘Stars’ is out April 6.
