If you think that the world has lost its raw edge in rock ‘n’ roll, fear not, because Tarah Carpenter and her explosive Grunge-Punk powerhouse, “Tarah Who?” are here to change everything. “Army of Women,” their most recent single, is more than just a song; it’s an industrial-infused symphonic rebellion prepared to shake up the rock scene.
Imagine this: Alain Johannes and Tarah Carpenter, the fearless frontwoman with an attitude and a drum kit, teamed up. Johannes is the wizard of sound behind bands like Eleven, Chris Cornell, Queens of the Stone Age, and Them Crooked Vultures, if you’re not familiar with him. What was the outcome? An incredible song that hits you like a sound wave and combines massive riffs that you could probably see from space with moving lyrics honoring women’s strength.
But, this is not Tarah’s first rodeo—oh no, this trailblazing musician began her adventure in France, where she broke with stereotypes by learning to play the drums at the age of 14. In the present day, she is a one-woman musical army with skills in songwriting, producing, bass, guitar, and singing. Beyond simply being a musician, Tarah Carpenter represents empowerment in a field that occasionally forgets to give credit where credit is due.
“Tarah Who?” is more than just a clever moniker; it’s an assertion. Having destroyed stages with L7, Life of Agony, Madball, and Prong for a full year, they are demonstrating that slowing down is not for the weak. “Army of Women” is a rallying cry that demonstrates their dedication to breaking down barriers and forging new paths in the music industry.
Imagine this powerhouse traveling with legendary acts from Europe to the East Coast and bringing a trail of enthralled fans with them. If you believed that was the end of the tale, prepare to hang onto your leather jackets because a new EP is in the works and will be released in 2024. For fans of grunge-punk, it’s like Christmas arrived early.
Now that you’re invited, come ride this musical rollercoaster with Tarah Who? Now available for streaming on all major platforms, “Army of Women” is waiting to become the soundtrack to your rebellious spirit. Tarah Carpenter and her band are here to remind you that the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll is alive and well and more loud than ever, so get ready to rock.
