PART TIME RECORDS Announces PTR Singles Club Volume 1 featuring Tiles & Siberian Tiger is out now
Siberian Tiger

It was in the early stages of COVID-19 lockdown that Emma Coyle and Joel Byrne, co-owners of Part Time Records, created PTR Singles Club – a new extension of the label that focuses on delivering a selection of new musical discoveries straight to your doorstep. Today they announce the first iteration of the Singles Club with singles from Adelaide duos Tiles and Siberian Tiger.

Dream pop duo Tiles first came to PTR’s attention in May with the release of their debut single ‘Red Wine’. Emma says of the discovery “Joel and I were already aware of Katie and Matt’s other musical projects having seen them play many times around town – but when we first heard Tiles we were both struck with nineties nostalgia. We felt their aesthetic would be a perfect complement for ‘Water The Plants’, one of the tracks from Siberian Tiger’s debut EP that we wanted to give a physical release”.

Made possible through funding from South Australia’s Music Development Office, Volume 1 of the Singles Club will be released gradually over the coming year and will feature 3 x split 7” singles available via parttimerecords.com as well as digitally. The vinyl release features cover artwork by Adelaide illustrator Luku and each copy will be individually hand-numbered and pressed on coloured vinyl.

TILES
What began as simple instrumental demos constructed in Matt Schultz’s home studio were brought to life and elevated by the addition of Kate Pomery’s melodic touch and heartfelt confessional lyrics. Drawing inspiration from DIIV, Jay Som and Soccer Mommy, ‘fomo‘ is the result of the duo honing their sound and hints at their penchant for modern shoegaze and dream pop.

Lyrically, ‘fomo‘ is an examination of the importance placed on trying to avoid the anxiety and pressures of life by taking the time out for yourself to do so; it’s about that night you stay in and have a bath instead.

SIBERIAN TIGER
Bree Tranter and Chris Panousakis wrote, produced and recorded their six track debut EP First Dance which was released in mid-August. For Chris, the past few years have seen him fluctuate between his solo project Timberwolf and time spent on the road as Matt Corby’s guitarist, a welcome overlap with Bree, who is also a longstanding member of the band. Bree’s focus was equally on the return of her band – international indie darlings – The Middle East. Sprawled across the globe, the pair found comfort in slowly assembling First Dance however possible. Sometimes together, often apart, yet always making up for lost time in their home studio on the South Australian coastline.

Water The Plants‘ encourages the discussion of how important little wins are, when breaking the cycles of depression. When you are on top of the world, something so small as watering the plants seems almost too easy, but when you’re in a funk – if you’re lucky – that might just be the only thing you accomplish that day and there’s nothing wrong with that.
