Brisbane indie-pop darling, Tiarne follows up her 2017 debut EP, Bloom with coming-of-age gem, Lights, out 19 October with a launch show at Black Bear Lodge on 31 October.
An upbeat, electro-pop song about moving away from friends and family to fully embrace a new city as home, Lights was produced with Clawmachine's Dylan Lindquist featuring Tiarne's trademark airy vocals and organic instrumentation with waves of electronic production and industrial guitar licks.
Known for her captivating voice and sentimental storytelling, Tiarne has made an impression on the Australian music scene over the past year earning nationwide airplay on community radio, television and film features and a finalist spot at the 2017 QUBE Effect Awards.
The Brisbane local’s latest single, Lights champions change, heralding a new era for the songstress that reflects a maturing outlook on life.
“Lights is the beginning of my next musical chapter. It’s more powerful than my previous work, charting my personal and professional growth while also honouring my roots.”
“Inspired by my adopted home, Brisbane, where I’ve lived for four years now, I'd be lying if I didn't say that moving away from friends and family was really hard. It's taken a while to feel at home here.
"Lights reflects that moment when I finally felt like 'Yes! This is home now and I love it!"
Originally from the Gold Coast, Tiarne says that while she loves going back to visit friends and family often, "it feels so different to when I was younger. My previous songs were very nostalgic, remembering those special times. And while sentimentality is and always will be in my DNA, this new music is about change; moving out, growing up and creating new memories.”
Although she has moved away from her hometown, Tiarne continues to collaborate with local producer and high school friend, Dylan Lindquist (Clawmachine), who she says, "has really brought the vision of my music to life and gets the direction I want to take."
Lindquist said, "When I first heard Lights I was blown away and so excited to get started on it. It's my favourite song Tiarne has written so far.
"Working with Tiarne is such a fun process, half our studio time is actually probably just us reminiscing high school. We’ve always kinda been there for each other musically and the way things are going with her music I think there’s going to be so many more opportunities for us to work together."
Like the old adage home is where the heart is, Tiarne’s Lights empowers listeners to embrace change and create ‘home’ wherever you go.
Tiarne’s new single Lights is out 19 October, with a launch show at Brisbane’s Black Bear Lodge on 31 October. Tickets on sale 1 October via Oztix.
