The Tarsier Records boys just released their first family track!
“Beautiful,” a track that echoes the heightened feeling of attraction to a girl who doesn’t realize her own beauty, sees the label slamming back into people’s summer party playlists with its first real family release. Markus Paterson and Inigo Pascual trade verses and choruses about a girl whose beauty they want the world to see, while Kyler goes off throughout, dropping a verse of his own at the end.
Moophs supervises the hit by providing the heartbeat, which alternates between an infectious piano-driven verse and a slapper of a drop in the chorus, tied off with a smooth, melodic bridge. As the writer, composer, producer, and mixing and mastering engineer, he’s wearing a lot of different hats on this one.
Says Moophs, “This song started as an idea I had in 2017, just that little piano pattern in the verse. It felt like an earworm, but I wasn’t totally sure where to take the rest of it. It took a lot longer for the full form to unfold - I went through sooo many different versions. But having the kids come in on it was perfect. They brought exactly the right energy. I’m glad to be able to highlight their chemistry in a track - they play off each other so well.”
That’s what you call teamwork.
Working with your best friends
Markus’ first single of the year with Tarsier Records goes big by enlisting his best buds. “It's one of the best things when you're doing what you love, but imagine doing what you love with three of your best friends.”, said Markus.
You may know them for their on-screen roles as actors-hosts and dedicated musicians, what you don’t see on camera is the covetable bond these boys have.
A peek into the “family”
The label goes under the slogan “it’s all in the family”, which resonates the sonic identity of “Beautiful”: each artist giving their best to come up with a solid family track that makes you stop for a second and say, “this is Tarsier.”
“The experience putting this track up with Moophs, Inigo, and Shawn was so fun. Literally just goofing around in the studio, and it ended up being such a great song,” Markus recalls.
“Beautiful” by Markus, Inigo, Kyler, and Moophs is out now on all digital platforms, and you could listen to it right here!
