TIA GOSTELOW’s voice is vulnerable, salient, lucid, liquid, confident, un-certain, defiant. It makes her songs what they are. And ‘Hey Friends’ is a tale that needs no introduction. However, it is an indisputable fact that within this dream-pop / haze-pop sacrament, we here that crusty ‘chip-on-her-shoulds’ kind of magistration.
But don’t let go. Hold her hand.
She’ll guide you. To the place of parties, neglect, self-doubt, phoenix like resolutions.
On September 21st, her debut album ‘Thick Skin’ will drop.
Take the sentiments on ‘Hey Friends’, as they are laid out. That’s how it should be. Jam to it. Slather up the ‘malaise’. Lap up the ‘vitriolic nihilism’.
Life is a party. It has to end sometime.
Now what will you do?
Album release party @ Northcote Social Club (Victoria, Australia) on October 13th.
