Perth based band TSTY has just released their new single Over You, the follow-up to their last single Broken. TSTY recently said this to describe their sound: ‘Maybe if Paramore and Dua Lipa had a baby; that would be us… maybe…’ And that’s not such a stretch, especially when listening to their last single Broken, an alt-pop track that acutely blended pop and R&B and sprinkled it with some indie-rock edge, subsequently affording the band some healthy radio attention.
But Over You reveals a slight departure from Broken and one that perhaps is wise, both stylistically and professionally. The new single is a slick sounding reggae flavoured pop track that feels like a natural progression for the band without seeming like a conscious attempt at softening its appeal for the sake of mass exposure. Working under the guidance of one of John Feldmann’s (The Used, The Struts, Good Charlotte) engineers, Michael Bono (Blink 182, The Hunna, New Politics) and having renowned LA producer Zakk Cervini (5SOS, Machine Gun Kelly, Yungblud) mix and master the track, the band was inspired to flex their creative muscles and Over You is the result. TSTY, who are Chez Watson (Lead Vocals), Claudia Calabrese (Keyboard/Vocals), brothers Reece (Guitar/Vocals) & Caleb Lenzo (Bass) and James Papanaoum (Drums), met at a local music school in their hometown of Perth and have been writing, recording and performing together ever since. When asked about their creative process TSTY said: ‘The best tunes to come out of little creative bodies have been the ones that just come naturally.
Whether it’s seeing where a chord progression takes us, or if there’s a lyric we just can’t get out of our heads – whatever we’re feeling whenever we feel it really. We love the feeling of when a big chorus hits and you can feel the excitement in the song. So we try to keep things in mind when we are creating a track but there’s no formula…every song is different and we always just try to serve the song’. And Over You certainly contains the pay-off of a big chorus and is sure to attract a lot of attention at radio and a good deal of streaming playlists.
