SUPPORT FOR ‘SNAKES & LADDERS’
“2 things we know about Timi. First up, he loves snakes. Secondly, he can write a crunchy, colourful, super fun jam and this one has me sliding down the ladder to come geddit.” – 4/5 stars
– Declan Byrne – triple j (USA)
Sydney-based indie-rock artist Timi Temple has just unveiled his scintillating new single ‘Snakes & Ladders’ and announced his upcoming attempt to break a Guinness World Record – for the world’s biggest game of Snakes & Ladders.
The track flawlessly exudes Timi’s distinctive brand of indie-rock, effortlessly blending searing guitar riffs, thudding percussion and nonchalant lead vocals to create something wholly his own. Reverb-soaked instrumentation and fuzz guitar riffs combine to create the song’s extravagant psych-laden bridge.
Timi talks about the meaning behind ‘Snakes & Ladders’:
“’Snakes & Ladders’ is a song born of societal experiences and commentary about my life. As I’m starting to see success in my music career, sycophantic friends from the past emerge (the snakes) to climb the career ladder that they now deem me to be? Ironically, the sombre tone of the song is downplayed through the use of the children’s board game metaphor and my tongue in cheek lyrics. The song also has a strong connection to my home country of Australia referencing ‘Falls Festival in December.”
Timi has consistently toured the country, selling out venues across NSW, including Waywards, Oxford Art Factory Gallery, The Vanguard and Marly Bar, as well as touring with established acts like Baker Boy, Kilter, Cosmo’s Midnight and Bootleg Rascal.
As a performer Timi has featured on triple j‘s Like A Version with Kilter, Cosmo’s Midnight and Kota Banks, and performed at Australian festival juggernauts Splendour in The Grass, Field Day, Listen Out, Yours & Owls and Falls Festival.
Previous singles have been widely embraced by radio tastemakers triple j, triple j Unearthed, FBi, 4ZZZ, RTR FM, 2XX and a slew of other Australian community stations. His catalogue has also seen support from tastemaker blogs Indie Shuffle (ZAF), Clash Magazine (UK), Monster Children, Pilerats, Life Without Andy, Purple Sneakers and Savage Thrills.
