Tired All The Time (TATT) are back with a brand-new single called ‘Regrets’. This time, the trio of dystopian explorers, who boast their synth richness yet again, dive into the personal psychic consequences of broader economic shifts since the easy life experienced in the 1970s.
As consumerism has gripped society tighter, the fast-paced nature of our lives has meant we have lost control of mankind in the process. By using dark textures and languid vocalism, TATT portray themselves a lot like their influences Joy Division, Interpol, and the Jesus And Mary Chain, and this helps them in their target of achieving a plutonian genre they can officially call their own.
Talking about the new release, the band said: “Regrets depicts the irony of how Reaganomics ultimately destroyed the idealised world it hoped to recreate. Many people can relate to the experience of realising somewhere along the path to a goal, their choices have made it impossible to achieve.”
And to support their ethos of downbeat music, they also provided us with a quote: “The world that made you miserable is the one where you were made.”
TATT is your perfect band for when you feel lost in the world. Not only that, though, but the trio have established themselves as successful musicians. They have shared the stage with notable platinum selling UK artists such as Feeder and Man On Man their album ‘Be Well’ garnered a Harmony Award for Best Music Video for ‘Bone Dry’, and they have received finalist nominations for the 2019 Washington Area Music Awards.
It's fair to say that a lot has changed since we last covered this fine band. They are going from strength to strength, and the release of ‘Regrets’ is worth its weight in gold as the trio continue to impress.
