Asian-Australian musician Yeo has released his latest single, ‘TIRED’.
For his most raw and exposed single yet, Yeo channels the work of Moses Sumney, Brittany Howard, and Blake Mills on this emotional ballad.
Minimal production utilises a bed of organs, a dreamy guitar harmony, and sleepy, almost hypnotic vocals, emphasises Yeo’s vulnerability as he explores the idea of love giving him the tenacity to overcome all obstacles.
This incredibly intimate yet hauntingly nostalgic ballad was written in the midst of Melbourne’s strict COVID-19 restrictions, created at the same time as Yeo’s previous single, ‘OBSESSION’.
“It was also written in heavy Melbourne lockdown and during another injury rehab period, however this time it contains optimistic promises of getting back to enjoying life with loved ones,” Yeo tells us, speaking about the new single.
‘TIRED’ will be accompanied by a captivating music video out this week on June 18, blending social realism with surrealism to tell the story of a blue collar worker who yearns for more.
