about

Following on from releasing his double A-Side ‘TwoYear – TwoSide’ in April, Sydney-based indie-rock DIY artist Timi Temple returns with tour dates and his vivacious new single ‘Tomorrow Is Yesterday’, produced by the artist himself and mastered by Steve Smart (Tash Sultana, Vance Joy, Cub Sport) at Studios 301.

‘Tomorrow Is Yesterday’ opens with distorted rolling rhythm guitars, before dropping into glistening syncopated indie-pop with Temple’s nonchalant vocals delivering biting ear-worms. The chorus breaks out with a flurry of colour through washed guitar riffs and thumping bass lines. Littered with strong call-backs to music legends such as The Dandy Warhols, ‘Tomorrow Is Yesterday’ is a gliding jaunt showcasing Temple at his lyrical and melodic best.

Timi talks about the meaning behind ‘Tomorrow Is Yesterday’:

“The inspiration behind this song struck me at the start of 2019, I had just come from 8 weeks of travel in Europe over new years and I was having dinner at Dads when suddenly a family intervention took place... Everyone had decided it was time for me to get a ‘real job’ and the pressure was on. I come from a family of 7 where everyone has a ‘professional’ job and I’m the black sheep in the music/arts field. I was bombarded with questions regarding my future plans, house, etc and you can imagine the crushing anxiety that came with it. 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”.

lyrics

FULL LYRICS:
I’m just a rat spinning the wheels of dollar signs in their eyes... I’m just a battery, automatically sucking my life...

When tomorrow is yesterday, today's just the same,
I got friends on the carriage, but i don’t know their names, and I think how did I get here, again and again...

They say I’m alkaline, ever-ready for over time... I pop my adderal, collaterally stuck in my mind...

When tomorrow is yesterday, today’s just the same,
I’m a candle thats burning but I’m losing my flame,
and I think how did I get here, again and again and again...

You’re not just a kid anymore, got to think about tomorrow when it comes today... I just can’t help thinking there’s more to my life, everyday I do it over again...
