Tarah Who? have just released their new single “Manners”! It’s taken from their album, Exposed, and influenced by true-life events.
“Manners” was inspired by the story of Tarah’s mom, Mimi, who was abandoned as a child, raised in a foster home, and went to Catholic school. “Manners” sheds light on the pressures Mimi grew up with to be a good civilian and to always be well-mannered and behaved.
Mimi’s unique journey through the obstacles of growing up in a religious home is well illustrated in the “Manners” music video.
Tarah’s hope for “Manners” is that it will spread love and kindness to all listeners. She says, “I’m really sensitive to things that happen around me, and I love studying psychology and human behavior.” She continued, explaining that “when I write, I seek to process personal stories and news stories through these perspectives, but in a way, that’s relatable to everyone.”
As with most of her songs, Tarah wants others to reflect on equality, in religion, race, gender, and more. With occurring controversial events, “Manners” is a powerful reminder for listeners that love is within us and not to be sought anywhere else.
‘Manners’ is available via your preferred streaming service.
