LISTEN: Tempesst - 'Is this all that there is?'

"it made me think of ageing, how our bodies are decaying, and now the only thing that's keeping me afloat is my heart not failing"

Some very good news for your Wednesday - indie-psych five piece Tempesst are back! The London based Aussies have been releasing singles and EPs for a few years now, continually impressing fans & press alike with their 60s and 70s influenced tunes and joining the likes of The Temper Trap and Albert Hammond Jr. on tour. The track arrives ahead of showcases for the band at SXSW this week.

The single was written in Australia in January, with frontman Toma explaining: "I was at Little Cove, a beach in Noosa. It's a little stretch of beach near a national park, it was totally filled with people. I just sat there in this ideal setting and realised how strange people are, especially when they're at the beach. I wrote about what I saw and how it made me feel."

The band built their own studio in an empty warehouse in Hackney in late 2018, where they're currently working on the finishing touches to their debut album. Pony Studios is now home to a number of well known producers and writers and comprises of over ten production suites and live recording rooms. UK, US and Europe shows are to follow with the album release later in the year!
