Eora/Sydney’s very own total tommy, the singer, songwriter, and Queer heartthrob, has recently unveiled her debut single ‘microdose‘, a captivating creation crafted one stormy night in the intimacy of her bedroom studio.
The song beautifully captures the enchanting and all-encompassing essence of a crush, drawing inspiration from the raw emotions found in a teen’s journal. Infused with a distinctive lo-fi indie grunge vibe, ‘microdose’ immerses listeners in a world marked by a cascade of wiry, interwoven guitars and softly murmured vocals. Produced by Mark Zito and mixed by London post-punk icon Dan Carey, the track boasts a bold and infectious sound that resonates with the spirit of a nostalgic Skins episode (if you know, you know).
Accompanying the single is a visually striking music video co-directed by HOLL and total tommy, presenting an angsty vibe that provides viewers with an initial glimpse into total tommy’s aesthetic.
“total tommy started when I moved cities, came out, and spent time properly getting to know myself. Parts of my brain got unlocked that I’d never been able to tap into before, and with that I quickly got to learn a lot about who I was. I partied so much with new queer friends, fell in love, made mistakes, and wrote music to make sense of it all”, she shares.
total tommy has recently signed with Astral People Management, known for representing artists like Cosmo’s Midnight, Memphis LK, and KUČKA. Additionally, she has secured a global deal with [PIAS] Recordings, recognised for collaborating with artists such as Lykke Li, Connie Constance, and Nation of Language.
The release of ‘microdose’ unveils a uniquely infectious sound and gritty aesthetic, leaving us eagerly anticipating what total tommy has in store for us next.
