London via Australia folk/psych rockers Tempesst offers the third single from their upcoming debut album ‘Must Be A Dream’ (September 30th).
singer Toma Banjanin said: “I grew up near Noosa, a small beach town in Australia. In my town, a 30 year old man was typically a family man, with a normal job, a mortgage etc. The kind of guy who had a balanced life and what seemed to be contentment as a byproduct. These guys had beliefs, they lived by a code that guided each decision with a brand of certainty that I envy and in my subconscious, this archetype framed the kind of firm identity one should expect to acquire by age 30. A couple of decades on, here I am, 30, still wandering, without the beliefs or certainty I expected to have.”
Exploring the band’s humble beginnings in a small coastal town in Queensland Australia, ‘High On My Own’ juxtaposes their comparatively “grown up” peers versus their own lives, with the track’s nuanced lyrics touching upon the search for meaning in life, aging and ultimately finding your own way.
The band consists of Toma, Andy Banjanin, Eric Weber, Kane Reynolds, Blake Misipeka.
They’re a must.
