[SONG OF THE DAY] Timi Temple - "Tomorrow Is Yesterday"
timi temple 2019

My most favorite find in recent memory, Sydney’s Timi Temple has returned with another spunky single. “Tomorrow Is Yesterday” is Timi’s response to being pressured by his family to get a “real job”. Gonna be honest, I’m not surprised that the same fellow who I came to know through his single, “2PM For Breakfast”, wherein he pokes fun at his friends who have to get up to go to work every day while he blissfully sleeps in did not take too kindly with the bombardment of questions he received at a family dinner turned intervention. “You can imagine the crushing anxiety that came with it,” he shares, “A line resonated with me after I had left frustrated from dinner... It was, ‘you’re not just a kid anymore’. This ended up being the first line of the chorus."

As he’s continued to carve out his signature sound, I continue to be impressed with how polished his songs are with how somewhat fresh out of the gate he is. He’s got that timeless alt-indie rock sound down pat, where it’s clear he’s been influenced by some legendary acts, but it also feels like he’s been around cranking out hits for at least like 15 years and having a fucking blast the whole time.

For the record, I’m having so much fun from this side of the planet to see some wonderful opportunities pop up for my the Sydney sweetie. Someone’s been getting some airplay for “Tomorrow Is Yesterday” on triple j’s ‘Home and Hosed’ show. FBi radio also said some super wonderful things about the track on their Under The Bridge show. Very fucking polite! Much deserved on this one for sure.

Fun side note: also had a glance at the top 5 cities where folks are checking him out on Spotify…NYC fam you makin’ me real proud over here. KEEP 👏🏻 IT 👏🏻UP 👏🏻.

[SONG OF THE DAY] Timi Temple x Doc Merlin - "No Where"

Sydney sweetie Timi Temple hasn’t slowed down since dropping his delightful gateway drug of an EP, Phuzz Boy, that I fell in love with late last year. Since then, he’s partnered up with his friend Doc Merlin, whom I’ve come to learn from prelim research is the moniker for his literal PhD wielding friend who is also a magician. Obviously I can’t get enough of that whole vibe because honestly it sounds like I invented his backstory. At any rate, the dynamic duo dropped a double single, “No Where” and “Get Away”.

Earlier in the week, the duo shared a super fun video for “No Where”, which will make retro video game enthusiasts get all up in their feels. I def am going to watch this a few more times to make sure I caught all the references in it.
