Bio

It’s been a fast start for the newly born, colossal 6-piece from Melbourne, Tempus Sun. Having been thrust dynamically into the heart of the music industry in such a short period of time, a strong foot hold within is imminent.

With an ‘Of Monsters and Men’-esque dual lead vocalist element and extremely diverse backgrounds the group synthesize to create a monumental soundscape that emits positivity, depth and a rich warmth. Their own musical curiosity evident, TS also manage to engage a cross pollination of genres including rock, pop and indie.

That concoction of traits can certainly be heard - and felt - in the magic that is ‘Owls’. Winning the ‘Listen Up Australia’ competition in October 2016 and Bank of Melbourne's 'Melbourne Music Bank' from a pool of over 900 artists, the track explodes in harmonious euphoria, whilst highlighting the importance of speaking up about mental health. Tempus Sun is now honoured to be official ambassadors of the charity organization.

Having recorded their debut self-titled EP with producer Tom Larkin (Shihad) at ‘Studios in the City’, Tempus Sun’s self-titled EP portrays a class and maturity that is hard to imagine of a group barely one year of age. They are testing conventional song-writing methods whilst exploring the boundaries of popular music.

Influenced by the likes of Mumford and Sons and Of Monsters and Men, TS pride themselves on the size, engagement and quality of their live shows without compromise. Wortes' and Park’s unique lead vocal blend is powerful and honest, flourishing into emphatic 3-part harmony that brings an irrepressible smile to your face. Underpinning this is lush instrumental warmth that persuades you to be consumed in its explosive bliss.

With an ability to captivate their broad audience and envelop them in their vast sound, the delivery of their sophisticated lyrics and harmony allows listeners to relate Tempus Sun’s songs to their own lives. For here is a band that writes from the heart – impassioned lyrics and expressive songs.

Asked about the journey so far, Borromeo reflects with a wry grin.

‘I think sometimes it is a combination of hunger and patience. Chase the right people and you will find them, be persistent, but be patient. Finding people to write music with – and who share your vision – is a rare occurrence, but a powerful one. Our initial vision has definitely evolved and changed with our experiences of the last 6 months, but I think that’s what makes this all so exciting. We are discovering our fingerprint and sound as we go - and we want to go as far as possible.’

Coming off the back of a spot at Beyond the Valley 2016/17, an appearance at Hamer Hall and packed shows across many iconic Melbourne venues including The the Toff and The Evelyn, you are sure to encounter TS if you frequent the Melbourne music scene.

Tempus Sun’s debut self-titled EP is set for independent release on August 25th 2017.

"Tempus Sun are a very promising young talent whose song writing is mature and honest, and I’m excited to see their rise over the coming years"
- LANKS

Charging towards a big finish, this does indeed get there with the push of sunlight on the band's backs.

There is more of a pop hook to this one and it's excellent! The drums really open the gate to the heart on this one. It hits all the right spots, it's catchy and the songwriting is a beautiful piece of art.
