Though he still looks like he may have walked straight out of high school, Tim Commandeur is already somewhat a veteran of the Australian music industry.
A founding member of and drummer for mid-2000s Gold Coast outfit Operator Please, more recently Tim’s been playing his trade behind the drums as part of auspOp favourite Panama’s touring ensemble.
But now he’s ready to step into the light in his own right, via his debut solo single ‘Wasted’. And it’s brilliant.
To be released next Tuesday, ‘Wasted’ is sublime, glimmering indie-pop, resplendent with bubbling production and soft both male and female vocals.
“This song is very close to me. Having always been part of a group, I’ve dreamt of branching out and producing my own music,” Commandeur says. “I’ve been developing my production for a while now, and it’s only at this point in my career that I feel really excited and think that it’s right to share what’s happening in my mind musically.”
And, until the day of release, you can bag a free download simply by giving him a follow on Soundcloud.
