Premiere: Perth ex-pat Tim Ayre joins Kitsuné Musique with LAXX

Formerly one-half of Perth break-out duo Tim & Jean, the now-Melbourne-based musician blossoms with his latest.

We've shared our fair share of Tim Ayre over the years, whether it be as one-half of Perth indie-electronica break-outs Tim & Jean - once a defining force in the west coast's music scene some ten years ago now - to his solo project Tim Ayre, which made a debut with Find You a few years back. In his solo work, Tim Ayre encaptures the captivating nature of Tim & Jean's light-hearted indie-pop but twists it with newfound influences and inspiration, whether it be the soft grooves of Prince or The Flaming Lips' experimentalism; each of which feel particularly visible on his latest single LAXX.

Premiering today ahead of its official release tomorrow, LAXX is a breezy indie-pop tune that takes the best of multiple sounds and condenses them down into one succinct sound, finding a home in French tastemaker label Kitsuné Musique in the process (Phoenix, Parcels, Years & Years, Two Door Cinema Club etc.). In saying that, however, the single's quite thickly-layered and dense, somehow finding this breezy, whimsical sound through the layering of synth chords, bright vocals, hazy guitar melodies and a subtle percussive pace that seemingly keeps everything in check as the track draws longer. A full EP will arrive through the iconic French label shortly, but in the meantime, lose yourself in LAXX's hazy, but focused sound below.
