Following a string of sold-out headline performances in NSW over summer, today, Tyne-James Organ announces his debut album Necessary Evil,available Friday 21 May via Dew Process (Sam Fender, Jack Garratt, London Grammar, Sea Girls, Sports Team). To mark the milestone, the 25 year-old singer-songwriter today unveils his contagious new single Sunday Suit.
Sunday Suit shimmers with glowing grooves, lush layers and buoyant vocal melodies. “Sunday Suit is all about dancing away your troubles. In the nude. But alone so it’s not creepy lol. But bringing it to life visually I didn’t want to sing the words ‘dancing naked’ so I thought a Sunday Suit could be a nod to that. This is one of my favourites on the record and I’m very excited to play it live!” says Organ of the track.
Necessary Evil was recorded throughout 2020 with longtime creative partner Chris Collins (Tigertown, Gang of Youths) at his NSW Hinterland studio, Stokers Siding. Immersed in a rural setting, almost untouched by the outside world, brought a new level of comfort and focus to the process. “The nature surroundings, Chris’ cooking, the fireplace in the studio. Every fucking thing was perfect. Magic mountain.”
Organ wouldn’t even let other music enter his mind. “I feel in this day and age we are influenced consciously and subconsciously by anything and everything we listen to. So, throughout the album process I only listened to my demos, which meant the only influence which would come into play was myself. I’m so glad I did that.”
The result sees Organ move from triumphant and jubilant at one moment, to introspective and tender at the next. He deals with grief and pain, power and passion – sometimes open and raw with bare bones acoustics, other times with undeniable swagger via chugging guitar riffs and a swing for the fences approach that only comes from letting it all go and letting the music speak for itself.
