This week, the New Week New Album article swims from Portugal to Australia – and it’s with an irreverent artist so up-to-date that this journey will be made in a flash. Meet Tyne-James Organ.
Tyne hails from Wollongong, with his musical heart in Melbourne. All this in Australia. He began gaining attention in 2017 with the release of the song Watch You Go, which crudely and harshly describes the death of his Father, Rikki, in 2016. Gradually he grew up, maturing experiences and, at the same time, conceiving music worthy of the name. The result? The first album of originals.
The album defines itself with a strong dose of separate feelings, through 12 passages. We advance in this adventure with Stranger, where Tyne-James’ voice enters our ears in a powerful way, almost as if we have known him for a long, long time. A familiar feeling, certainly.
Sunday Suit, one of the singles from the album, is the perfect song for the unforgettable journey of our lives. With a certain touch of Bruce Springsteen in the mix, the fresh breezy feeling is thrown in our faces right from the first few minutes. And from here on out we just want more, because everything is right when the soundtrack captivates us to this extent.
The power of Overtime is allocated to an incredible synergy between guitar and the artist’s powerful voice, with lyrics that make us dream and reflect on the best that is done in this industry.
Not Ready For Love is bombastic. And another one that we feel like sharing with all our friends, at any time of the day.
And on the fifth round, a rockier, less melancholic version. Better Than This is just that: a vibrant rock for the world’s biggest stages. The mood is that in a few year’s time it will be filling a Glastonbury of this life. And it will clearly be well deserved.
In the middle? Classic POP to make artists like Shawn Mendes blush. Hold Me Back has all the right ingredients for this unique sensation.
If we’re already captivated at 100, with London’s Calling we shoot up to 200. Because a version of Tyne’s reflection, added to the English capital, could only bring, certainly, a feeling of nostalgia and desire to travel again, revisit, feel. And it is with this rhythm that, as we close our eyes, we feel in the clouds, about to embark on this experience.
The Fire is a slow burn, which has its electrifying and hot point in the chorus, with an urge to jump until there is no more air.
Heal You, Burning Desire, and Graceful lay the artist bare in front of us. In a moment of confession, we feel like we are going through, wick by wick, the history of it, with all its high or lower points. The voice commands life – and here it is she who seduces us.
If the last three songs already presented us Tyne more naked than ever, Necessary Evil, the theme that gives name to the album brings a demo feeling to the table, in a strong, intimate feeling, almost recorded with the first device that appeared in front of him. The reality? It works exquisitely, with a tremendous desire for repetition.
