Two Times Shy, the Meanjin/Brisbane-based pop-punk powerhouse, are back with their infectious new single ‘Gone’, set to be released on Friday, July 21. Following the success of their debut EP, ‘It Looks Better Than It Sounds’, which garnered over 60,000 streams across all platforms, Two Times Shy continues to deliver their signature sound.

Punchy and energetic, ‘Gone’ is an upbeat anthem that showcases Two Times Shy’s clean-cut production and mainstream appeal. Blasting through the heated 3 minutes, there is never a dull moment as the band simultaneously breaks hearts and stitches them back together with their thrilling style.

Feeding into their emo side, the track delves into the emotions of falling apart when that special someone is gone, capturing the profound impact their absence has on your world. Frontman Douglas Hudswell states, “”Gone’ tells a story of what it’s like to fall apart when the person you love and want to be with is not with you, how you feel when they are gone.” 

Naturally, with its catchy riffs and high-spirited energy, ‘Gone’ –in pure pop-punk fashion– is paradoxically heart-aching and feel-good that comes and goes all too quickly.

Since the band’s debut in late 2022, Two Times Shy have made huge strides, gaining significant recognition and support from esteemed platforms, including support from Triple J Unearthed TOPSTriple J (Home & Hosed and Short.Fast.Loud), Idobi Radio in the US, Kill Your StereoHysteriaChannel 7’s Friday Night Footy and much more. The band also secured coveted spots on popular Apple Music playlists, such as New Music Daily and The New Rock.

In addition to their growing success, Two Times Shy has recently opened for prominent bands under the Destroy All Lines Agency, including Late 90s from Perth and Bad Neighbour from Brisbane.

Mend that lonely heart with Two Times Shy’s bittersweet belter when ‘Gone’ is released on Friday, July 21. For more information and updates on the band, please visit their official website and follow them on social media.
