Spotlight on Tattoo Money

Often compared to bands like Dr. Dog, Twin Shadow, and TV on the Radio, Tattoo Money is an indie R&B-rock artist from New York.  Having released his debut album, The Brain. The Mind. The Heart, on December 9th, Tattoo Money has gone on a month-long tour where he made appearances on Fearless Radio and Audiotree TV.  In addition to these in-studio appearances, Tattoo Money has been featured on Jack Thriller, Surviving the Golden Age, and AM NY.  Between his well-written lyrics and infectious beats, it’s easy to see why Tattoo Money is capturing people’s attention.

The Brain. The Mind. The Heart features eleven tracks of brilliance.  Each song sheds light on interesting matters while providing listeners with undeniably contagious and unique rhythms.  For example, “CoCo Curious” is a catchy single from Tattoo Money’s album that is based on his experience with interracial dating while many of his other tracks dive into various other areas of his life that are profoundly honest.  My personal favorite from his album is “Melt With You” because it perfectly melds catchy guitar riffs with Tattoo Money’s staple hip-hop flair. Together, this fusion is what makes Tattoo Money’s music unlike anything that’s being produced at the moment.

There’s no doubt in my mind that Tattoo Money’s talent and distinctive sound will garner him worldwide notoriety in the years to come, so I look forward to see what he does next.  In the meantime you can join me in listening to The Brain. The Mind. The Heart nonstop here.
