Sydney’s Taylor B-W is back with a new slice of indie/R&B in In Ur Net, a fresh and vibrant cut from the artist who has been continuing to grow her body of work over the last year and a half.
When it comes to Taylor’s work, listeners are presented with music they can vibe out to in any club or party setting; while also being served lyricism that is personal, relatable, tackling a full spectrum of emotion.
In Ur Net continues this tradition for Taylor: it’s a song that presents as a crisp fusion of R&B, Reggaeton and contemporary pop music and beneath, there exists songwriting that pulls the listener in a direction marked by depth and impact.
A song about getting lost in obsession and lust for someone who doesn’t deserve it, In Ur Net covers feelings of emotional entrapment and the all-encompassing overwhelming feelings that can come with it. For this project, Taylor worked with producer Liam Quinn at Alexandria’s Ralph Street Studios to get In Ur Net just right.
“Like most of my songs, In Ur Net is a fun, danceable pop song on face-value, however, behind the shininess, I delve into something deeper. This song is my take on how obsession and desire for someone can transform into delusion and mania. In Ur Net is for anyone who has experienced an uncontrollable obsession and lust for someone who they know doesn’t deserve them. It’s like you are stuck in deep water, trying to swim up to the surface, but something keeps sucking you deeper and deeper, giving you tunnel vision.” – TAYLOR B-W
Sonically, In Ur Net sees Taylor moving into territory where we can hear the likes of Mabel, Dua Lipa and The Weeknd all coexisting; music made with attitude and no fear of blending genre and time with intensely personal narrative perspectives.
For the music video, Taylor worked with filmographer Desmond Hoo around different areas of Sydney’s inner west including Sydney Park and Newtown.
“I came across Desmond Hoo’s work randomly while flicking through Instagram and I reached out to him to see if he would be interested in collaborating on my music video. I sent him a Pinterest mood board and an extensive YouTube playlist with videos that emulated my vision. Des had a really fresh take on my initial vision, by delving into the sentiment behind my lyrics. He wanted to create an intimate ode to the cataclysm that is love, an anthem for those who get caught in love’s web. With a series of carefully composed frames we feel a claustrophobia between me and my partner – without the camera ever revealing the partner’s face. I’m caught in his orbit, unable to let go.” – TAYLOR B-W
Following on from 2021’s ‘I’m So Broke’ and ‘Nunchucks’, Taylor steps up once again as a strong addition to the current wave of Sydney Pop/R&B voices turning heads.
