Singer-songwriter Tyne-James Organ has offered up another taste of his debut album, with the release of his new single, London's Calling. Bringing emotions of heartbreak and anguish, the track recalls on the good parts of a relationship, as one party moves on to new adventures in another land.
Speaking of the track, Organ shares: "I wrote London’s Calling early 2019 with one of my best mates Luke Rundle. It’s about the day I found out an old friend was moving back to London. There’d been a gap of conversation for a good 18 months. So much I wanted to say, but didn't have the words. The day I got the message it all just fell out of me. It’s not about changing what is, or what could have been but just looking back at all the good that it was. I think we naturally forget about the good times within relationships after they’re over, and only focus on the end. Yes, it sucks but it happens. We live and we learn from it. I still haven’t sent that message I thought I would’ve but I guess this is it. I finished this one up in Byron last year with Chris Collins and I’m really proud of what came out,"
Organ will be hitting the road this June-July on his national Necessary Evil Tour. Kicking off in Adelaide on June 4, the tour will continue on to Perth, Wollongong, Sydney, Byron Bay, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Melbourne, Hobart and Canberra. Having shared stages with The Lumineers, Jake Bugg, Middle Kids, and Lime Cordiale to name a few, Organ's own headline tours have been known to sell out in minutes. Be sure to get in quick when tickets go on sale next week!
Recorded with longtime creative partner Chris Collins (Middle Kids, Skegss) at his NSW Hinterland studio, Stokers Siding, Necessary Evil came to be throughout 2020, with Organ immersing himself within the rural surroundings of the studio. The setting allowed the musician to completely lose himself within his compositions, focusing in on what he wanted to convey on his debut. The record is set to be a rollercoaster of emotions, moving between triumphant and jubilant tracks, to introspective and tender moments on the next. Navigating and commenting on themes of grief and pain, power and passion, Organ brings his signature open and raw lyricism atop bare bones acoustics to the collection of songs, juxtaposed by undeniable swagger with massive guitar riffs and a swing for the fences approach that only comes from letting it all go and letting the music speak for itself.
