Tal Arditi — Open Heart

The "Open Heart" EP is the next chapter in the quickly developing story of Tal Arditi, the Jose-Gonzales meets James Blake singer/songwriter. Fresh from securing a coveted support tour spot with folk favourites, Black Sea Dahu and having shared the stage with indie sensation Steph Strings, Tal's journey in 2024 is set to be nothing short of extraordinary.

A musical prodigy who completed jazz studies at age 18, Tal Arditi draws inspiration from the likes of James Blake, Tash Sultana, Jose Gonzales and Patrick Watson. Tal’s lyrics are evocative, stripped and bare, delving into his personal struggles, obsessions, passions, and fears.

Tal Arditi’s third EP, “Open Heart” features five powerful tracks that echo Tal’s personal and musical evolution:


"You and I"

Recently selected for Spotify’s New Music Friday playlists in Germany, this track transports listeners to a starry night in Senegal, as Tal captures the essence of yearning for somebody who is just out of reach.


"I Wanna Cry"

In this follow up single, Tal spills raw emotions post-breakup. The ballad opens with a haunting melody in the poignant style of James Blake that sets the stage for an EP delving deep into the complexities of the human experience.


"Open Heart"

The title track, "Open Heart" has soaring melodies, layered vocals, and 90s rock ballad influences encapsulating the EP's central theme of self-discovery and acceptance.



With angular riffs and dreamy vibes, "Lucy" injects an upbeat energy into the EP, inviting listeners to explore attraction and that tickle that is lingering around and won’t leave. 



A heartfelt tribute to Tal’s mom, written on a surfing trip on the west coast of Africa. The lyrics encapsulate Tal’s contemplation and realisation that one day, he will need to learn to live without the comfort of his parents.
