Taine is an independent Ugandan performer, self-taught songwriter, and record producer. Her performances tend to involve intricate movement, singing, and audience interaction. In the studio, she is inspired by various genres of music like alternative pop, Afro beats/afro-fusion, and hip hop, and continues to infuse them into her original creations.
She originally conceptualized, produced, and wrote her debut song ‘Static‘. It was later enhanced, mixed, and mastered by producer Axon and musician Joshua Baraka. Static is primarily a low-tempo dance song that can be best enjoyed in a live atmosphere.
It is a cocktail of different genres. ‘Static’ draws inspiration from dancehall which can be heard best in the drum pattern, a core element of the song. The song’s structure and vocal delivery are both indicative of the Afro-pop inspiration within it.
The lyrics of the song utilize a minimalistic but confrontational attitude, adding to the mysterious energy of the song and making it more enjoyable to sing along to.
