Tia Gostelow – ‘Phone Me’

Tia-Gostelow-music-2018

Australian singer-songwriter Tia Gostelow introduced us to her indie folk / pop stylings with the tender-toned dreamy sounds of ‘Giants’ earlier in the summer.

With the release of her debut album Thick Skin, Gostelow has unveiled another single ‘Phone Me’. A mix of retro Americana-tinged jangle and exquisite pop finesse, vocals ebb and flow from silky lilts to arresting smokey timbres, amid a hypnotic and shimmering haze as ‘Phone Me’ shuffles along a groovy drum beat, bubbling bass and impressive pop melodies. ‘Phone Me’ is is utterly compelling craft; the balance of pop sensibilities with the pure rich songwriting technique really shows what she is made of – this one resembles latter day Tennis at their finest; not a bad thing at all.

You can listen to ‘Phone Me’ below, and it is easy to see how she has built up quite the reputation in her homeland. You can check out the album here.

18-year-old Australian singer-songwriter Tia Gostelow and her indie folk / pop stylings, have built up quite the reputation in her homeland and for 2018, she is kicking off with the release of her debut EP, Status Anxiety.

Ahead of the aforementioned EP, Gostelow has shared ‘Giants’ and it is a doozy. It gently canters along with a tender tone built on dreamy guitar lines, peaceful melody as the vocals swish and swoon, through smokey to ranges of falsetto with a bristling blend of innocence and defiance in the face of adversity. Joined by keys, tripping percussion and angelic harmonies, it leads to a truly triumphant climax of idyllic peace and beauty. This peaceful but stirring indie folk gem is a joy to behold.

You can listen to ‘Giants’ below, lets hope Gostelow’s Status Anxiety EP isn’t far behind it.
