Domestic Violence Awareness: Tendayi Sutherland moves on from the evil lips of a monster on Gold

With the excitement slowly building for her upcoming album, Your Love is Civilisation, Tendayi Sutherland floats away like a butterfly after dealing with something absolutely tragic no human should ever experience on her important single Gold.

Tendayi Sutherland is a Kent, UK-based Zambian-British indie pop singer-songwriter, poet, music producer, and visual artist who loves to build up wisdom into her spirit.

It was inspired by positive shock, after past experience of domestic violence and love that was ambivalent, piercing and confusing.” ~ Tendayi Sutherland

Showing us her quality spoken word experience, Tendayi Sutherland shows us far inside that cage which threatened to destroy her forever. This is as honest as they come, you see. Vocally authentic and with lyrics which might cause a small tear to flow down our cheeks, there is so much to take in here from an artist who has lived through so much trauma.

Domestic violence can ricochet from your past into your future and colour the fabric of new love. But I have found hope and I hope to fly this personal flag, from my mountain of recovery, to signal that hope is within reach.” ~ Tendayi Sutherland

Gold from Kent, UK-based Zambian-British indie pop artist and music producer Tendayi Sutherland is a heartbreaking anthem which is intertwined with so much hope. Filled with so much vivid detail and a sound which might reverberate in the farthest part of your soul, this is something rather special for the world to learn from.

The sonic speed in which this song wades in the door, is quite spectacularly composed and the pace ebbs and flows. The intricate energies are such a pleasure to listen intently, as you can’t take your ears away.
