Emerging from their caravan by the coast, Alt Fiction have released their first new music since debuting in 2020 and being spotlighted on triple j Unearthed as Feature Artist.
‘Yesterday’ is the Gold Coast trio’s new single, seamlessly merging the sounds of indie pop with coastal rock.
The track is a tidy tune, delivered with a tightness that can only come from blood. It’s a synchronicity that was founded as brothers Mitch, Matt and Will Tyler grew up together in the rural QLD town of Killarney. From those humble country origins, Alt Fiction are now well into their ascent to Gold Coast indie pop rock stars.
‘Yesterday’ shimmers with bright guitars and swelling reverb, as nostalgic synths bounce over a timeless groove. The energy culminates with an undeniably catchy pop chorus, complete with a melody effortlessly delivering its reflective lyrics. “It’s about understanding what goes up in a relationship must come down,” says singer and guitarist Will Tyler. “About remembering the best times to help you through the worst, and coming to grips with the fact that no relationship can stay perfect.”
After years of getting things done themselves, Alt Fiction remain true to their DIY ethos. To celebrate the release of their new breezy anthem, the boys have filmed their own lyric video complete with an appropriately beachy performance.
Alt Fiction are ready to pick up where they left off, when the world suddenly decided to put a halt to everyone’s plans. With three releases under their belt, the brothers have already achieved Unearthed Feature Artist of the Week, spots on Rage and a label deal. They’ve also enjoyed playlist features on Spotify (New Music Friday, Indie Arrivals, Local Noise) and Apple Music (The New Rock, Road Trip Weekend), which has seen them amass over 300,000 streams to date. With the time since their forced hiatus spent amassing a veritable arsenal of new music, their time is now. Their new single may be titled ‘Yesterday’, but this is a band eagerly flying towards their bright future.
