Bio

“Sometimes” is the latest song from Byron Bay duo, Imbibe. Brothers Tennyson and Holden Nobel create a classic pop sound, authentic and thoughtful.

"Sometimes" continues the band's revival of a retro piano pop sound that is revitalised
and refreshed to place the band amongst their bedroom pop contemporaries.
Positioned amongst the likes of Rex Orange County and Mac Demarco, Imbibe
draw from a similar pool of influences but are separated by Tennyson Nobel's piano
driven songwriting and the band's organic production.

The brothers have been sharing music together since they were kids, learning
from their songwriter Dad. It was the start of a mad, musical immersion – Mozart one day, McCartney or Randy Newman the next. With a burning desire for new musical
possibilities, the brothers traded their backyard in Byron Bay to a bedroom in Berlin in 2018. ‘Sometimes’ shows how far this journey has taken them.

Ultimately, it’s a song about the comfort that comes from accepting that life is full of ups and downs.

“...‘Sometimes’ is really just about opening up: like if all the different parts of yourself are banging on your door and instead of shutting them out, you invite them in for tea..” Tennyson (Imbibe)

“Sometimes” is released on July 17th.

Nobody's doing sun-soaked golden pop like Imbibe right now.

if you've got a playlist that's called something along the lines of 'Sunday Morning' or 'Weekend Drive' or 'Summer Vibes', it better have this song on it.
