SUPPORT FOR ‘QUICK WORDS, LONG TROUBLE’
“You weave a hazy, technicolour world Timi. It’s wild and I like it”.
– Gemma Pike – triple j (AUS)
“[Quick Words, Long Trouble] just begs to be played at maximum volume with the windows down during a nice summers drive”.
– We All Want Someone To Shout For (USA)
Sydney-based indie-rock artist Timi Temple has returned with another rousing anthem in ‘Quick Words, Long Trouble’, produced and recorded by the artist himself.
The track opens up with purring flange guitar lines and woody drum rims, before expanding into a frenetic pre-chorus enveloped by Timi’s psychedelic screams. The choruses open up like a classic lighter-in-the-air era Brit-Rock sing-along, highlighted by a swift change in tempo and chunking rhythm guitars.
Timi talks about the meaning behind ‘Quick Words, Long Trouble’:
“’Quick Words, Long Trouble’ is my first song about love. I’ve generally tried to avoid writing songs about love because I think it’s been rinsed enough times by other artists. However, this song was cathartic and therapeutic to me as it helped me through a long-term breakup. The phrase is something that my mother used to tell me, somewhat translated from Thai meaning ‘don’t do anything in heated anger because the repercussions will last forever’. It’s served me well, but also probably lead to me not fighting for a salvageable relationship because I was too cautious with my words. The spoken word poem in the bridge of this song reflects this”.
In support of the release, Timi will embark on an East Coast tour, including dates in Brisbane, Sydney and Wollongong. This comes off the back of supporting Bootleg Rascal on their sold-out Yin & Yang tour in August/September. As a performer he’s also featured on triple j’s Like A Version with Kilter and Cosmo’s Midnight and performed at Australian festival juggernauts Splendour In The Grass, Field Day, Listen Out, Yours & Owls and Falls Festival.
He’s also sold-out venues across NSW, including Waywards, Oxford Art Factory Gallery, The Vanguard and Marly Bar, as well as touring the country with established acts like Baker Boy, Kilter and Cosmo’s Midnight.
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 (USA), 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 ‘Quick Words, Long Trouble’.
