SUPPORT FOR ‘FA-FA-FADING’
“Fa-Fa-Fading is a literal dream; a soft-sung haze of melodies and harmonies that unite for this cloudy, dream-pop sound that still bites with the Timi Temple-esque crunch.”
– PIlerats (AUS)
“Big fan of Timi’s stuff. He packs more little sonic easter eggs into his tracks than the credits of a Marvel movie.” – 4/5 stars

Sydney-based DIY indie-rock artist Timi Temple has just revealed his infectious new single ‘Fa-Fa-Fading’ – produced and recorded by the artist himself.
‘Fa-Fa-Fading’ is a kaleidoscope of growling indie-rock, that takes cues from luminaries The White Stripes, Mac DeMarco and The Kills. The enigmatic track is a scintillating blend of driving guitar riffs, hefty drums and reverberating vocals. Building towards a heartfelt spoken-word bridge, the song carries its momentum through to an anthemic final chorus.
Timi talks about the meaning behind ‘Fa-Fa-Fading’:
“Fa-fa-fading is pretty much the soundtrack to my first few months of life post long-term breakup. There wasn’t a single activity I could do where I wasn’t reminded of my ex. From mundane things such as walking my dog to friends asking where my ‘former’ half was, and eventually it frustrated me to the point where this song popped out. Surprisingly, during the cathartic course of writing this song, having my memories down on ‘paper’ meant I was haunted by them less and less in real life.”
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 he’s also 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 seen strong support from radio tastemakers triple j, triple j Unearthed, FBi Radio, 4ZZZ, RTR FM, 2XX and a slew of other Australian community radio stations. His catalogue has received praise from online tastemakers Indie Shuffle (ZAF), Clash Magazine (UK), We Love That (DEU), Hi Five For (CAN), Monster Children, Pilerats, Life Without Andy, Purple Sneakers, Savage Thrills, The AU Review and Best Before.
In the coming weeks Timi Temple will reveal an accompanying music video for ‘Fa-Fa-Fading’.
