Not Like It Should Be by Tim Ayre

Melbourne based singer-songwriter / producer Tim Ayre is poised to unveil his eponymous debut EP through Kitsuné Musique later this year and will pre-empt its arrival with a brand new tropical pop track ‘Not Like It Should Be’, following on from his recent summer hit, ‘LAXX’.

“The song is about feeling a bit left out or invisible in the world.”

Tim Ayre

Tim Ayre was lead singer and keyboard player with Tim and Jean whose debut single ‘Come around’ was launched by Triple J unearthed and created a groundswell of fans in Australia, America and UK. The acclaimed follow up ‘Find you’ was the first single taken from Ayre’s debut solo EP that was produced and co-written with Dylan Ollivierre from The Money War.

Influenced by the Beach Boys, the Beatles, the Flaming Lips, Stevie Wonder and Daft Punk, he channels all these touching points and more in his own compositions.

Having escaped his room to experiment in the studio, Tim Ayre crafts a deeply personal, dreamy and luxurious pop, blending guitars, drums, bass and synths all of which he plays effortlessly. 

Inspired by timeless moments spent by the ocean listening to his favourite trove of songs, Tim Ayre’s debut EP encapsulates this peaceful yet powerful instant of introspection.

The result is a highly chromatic and wistful sound that draws on the authenticity of yesterday to offer a vintage aesthetic of our day.
