Tempus Sun, the 2016 winners of the Melbourne Music Bank, will launch their new song ‘Owls’ at The Toff in Melbourne on Friday night.
“Owls is about speaking up about our struggles,” says singer Ed Borromeo. “ It’s a tune relatable to anyone with troubles, be it in the past or ongoing. It was created with mental illness in mind and the intention of influencing people to just have a chat about it with someone. Coming from personal experience, something as simple as having a chat is very easy to disregard as helpful, or is easy to procrastinate on, but I found it to be the first step in combatting almost anything.”
Edwin Tedjokusumo, best known for his work with Eskimo Joe, directed the video.
Tempus Sun is Andrew Wortes, Rya Park, Grant Hardisty, Ed Borromeo, Sean Close and Liam Purser.
Tempus Sun credit the Bank of Melbourne’s Melbourne Music Bank for accelerating their career to this stage. “Winning Bank of Melbourne’s Melbourne Music Bank was the most exhilarating experience of my life,” says Grant Hardisty. “ We entered it on a whim, with an optimistic ‘why not?’ attitude, but we never honestly considered that we’d be a shot. I remember the call so vividly, where I had to leave class to answer and hear the ridiculous news that we had made the Top 12. I replied to Laura on the phone, ‘are you kidding?’ to which she said, ‘that would be a pretty sick joke’!”
Tickets for Tempus Sun are from The Toff In Town.
