"I started a demo messing about with some new instruments like the Organelle M and sent over a very rough instrumental to Milan. She took the skeleton and structured it to fully realize the idea whilst adding some amazing vocal hooks and lyrics. Inspired by her lyrical content, I wanted to create a track that embodied and explored concepts of alternate pathways and dualities, with the visual aspects of the release focusing on mirrored images and reflections. 'If' embodies the more ambitious projects I'm working on, creating electronic music that a wider range of people can enjoy has always been something I've strived for and I feel after working with Milan on this song, I'm taking a step closer towards realizing that goal." - Tutara Peak

"'If' was written about a young love that's torn apart. I was reflecting on all the hopes of a relationship, to make it out of the struggle in the city/lower rungs of society, to greener pastures and to find peace. But it's cut short - I keep that open to interpretation - but to me, the person was rushing out of the struggle, and it was cut short by death, hence why they didn't have time to grow up together." - Milan Ring
With more new music on the horizon and a rosy trajectory, Tutara Peak's earned momentum sets the stage for a striking rise in the time ahead.
