“I WANT IT”

Australian musician and songwriter Tim Ayre is the latest artist to come out of Melbourne’s vibrant scene of creatives. Last year, he shared his first EP for Kitsuné Musique, the legendary Parisian label that helped break Digitalism and Hot Chip. He’s shared his first single of 2020, the breezy, transportive “I Want It”, and just last week unveiled the accompanying video. The visual was conceived at the peak of Los Angeles’ lockdown restrictions, and was planned by Ayre and Aidan Carberry entirely over Zoom calls.
“..crazy to think how different things are right now to then – makes me really appreciate how good the summer was here”, Ayre says of the tune, and he’s right – the song takes on a nostalgic, almost naive air in the vastly different world it’s being released into, recalling a time of less caution and capturing the unfiltered joy of that summer in Sydney.

Although his project is in its infancy, Tim Ayre is not quite the novice. He was one half of the duet Tim & Jean, which was widely supported by Triple J Radio in his home country. Tim is now ready to pursue the adventure as a solo performer.
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 favorite 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.
