As we approach the final month of 2020, Aussie artist TINY invites us to look back at all this madness in her bittersweet single “Good Life.” It’s an indietronic piece where TINY experiments with various textures, patterns, and arrangements that helps her deliver an eccentric, foot-stomping melody. “Good Life” gauges all the highs and lows of 2020, where TINY perceives it as a year where we lost a large degree of control over our lives, but also a time where we got to enjoy the small pleasures we often forget. Check it out:
Here’s what TINY had to say about the song:
“This track was my first attempt at sound design, at the time when I started, it was all purely experimental. I honestly wasn’t expecting it to turn into anything. The words ‘don’t go’ came out the second I laid down the chords of the synth that I made. The song basically wrote itself in a few hours, for me I was just trying to keep up with the ideas that were coming into my head. I went between making the sounds, to writing the top line, then back to producing then back to the top line. It all happened very quickly, I had to record a lot of it on my phone just to keep up with it all.
I feel like this track is a very vulnerable expression & extension of myself. This year has been a difficult one not just for myself but almost everyone I know. For the first time in my life I feel like there have been circumstances outside of me that could have the potential to rip my dream of 14 years away. It’s also a bittersweet song because I feel like during this time period I have had the chance to stop & smell the roses. As humans we’re always striving for that next best thing which has a tendency to take us away from all the small things that can make life truly beautiful. It’s easy to take things for granted, but in the bigger scheme of things life is what you make it & it can always be good if you let it. ‘Good Life’ is something I hope will speak to others who are currently going through a difficult time, just to remind them life can always be amazing if you keep the right perspective.”
