With a string of smash singles behind them Perth based TSTY are back bolder and brighter than ever with a sure-fire track Halftime Love.
Halftime Love is destined to be the band’s break-out hitVINCE LEIGH
The band’s previous single Over You—over 60k streams on Spotify and counting—helped them achieve new levels of radio play across the country and solidified their position as a band to watch in 2021.
The new track takes some cues from the 80s and features renowned producer Michael Bono (Blink 182, Mod Sun, New Politics) on vocals and production duties. Keeping their alternative-pop roots well and truly intact, Halftime Love shines with the band’s superb and dynamic performances, and features an exuberant, hypnotic rhythm, and an unforgettable anthemic chorus hook.
The band, consisting of Chez Watson (lead vocals), Claudia Calabrese (keyboard/vocals), brothers Reece (guitar/vocals) & Caleb Lenzo (bass), and James Papanaoum (drums), have known each other since the very beginning of their musical and creative endeavours, and have put their passions of writing and performing into practice ever since by performing to packed houses in some of Perth’s best live music venues, week-in and week-out.
As a result, they’ve made a name for themselves in the Perth music scene, not only for being one of the most high-spirited groups to have emerged in the last two years but also one of the hottest new pop bands in the country. Chez from the band explains the meaning behind their new track, ‘Halftime Love about broken relationships, where each person keeps hurting and spiting each other because it’s easier to do that than to say goodbye to the person you’ve been with for so long.’
Halftime Love is destined to be the band’s break-out hit; an undeniable song with a lyric that explores familiar and always pertinent themes. TSTY are scheduled to have a busy 2021, with recording sessions with LA producer Jon Lundin (Point North, Good Charlotte, The Faim) starting in the coming weeks, new songs set to be released and a run of showcase live gigs.
