Melbourne based man of many hats, Tim Ayre is back with a treat for your ears in the form of a summery new single Not Like It Should Be.

The singer/songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist is gearing up to release his debut EP, due out later this year via tastemaker label Kitsunè Musique and this single is the next taste of what to expect. Tim describes the track; “It’s about feeling left out or forgotten somewhere in the craziness of the world, then coming to terms with those feelings and trying to be happy in your own way.”

“Not Like It Should Be” follows the tropical pop track “LAXX” which was released to eager ears earlier this year and was described by The Line of Best Fit as “sparkling pop music which feels both intimate and surreal”. You might recall Tim as lead singer and keyboardist from Perth project Tim and Jean whose debut single “Come Around” was launched by triple j Unearthed and created a groundswell of fans in Australia, America and UK.

Influenced by The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Flaming Lips, Stevie Wonder and Daft Punk, he channels all these and more in his own compositions. Having escaped his room to experiment in the studio, Tim crafts deeply personal, dreamy and luxurious pop, blending guitars, drums, bass and synths, all of which he plays effortlessly.

Get ready to bliss out with this track and plenty more to come from Tim Ayre’s debut EP, due for release in November this year.
