Some songs are so good, you just can’t get them out of your head. And you never want to! Storing them deep inside allows you to dig 'em up again, like (re)discovered treasure, so they can reinvigorate your worldview all over again. And so the love grows. For Ty, The Mantles’ 2009 slice of garage-pop perfection, “Don’t Lie” is one of those songs. Having played and toured with The Mantles in the Bay Area back in the day, Ty descends compassionately into the layers of morality within their affirmation anthem, uncovering a haunted sense of time passed while remolding the surging rock around the original melody into solo acoustic performance. Intimate and disarming, Ty talks to himself with guitars and voices, an exquisite filigree for the romance cleft ruthlessly open in the lyrics; heartbreak vibes for a new age.

An earworm passed through Ty’s brain, straight to yours is just one of the many highlights of his forthcoming album, "Hello, Hi". Give “Don’t Lie” a listen today and explore his new tour dates (with the Freedom Band, natch) early next year in New Zealand and Australia - another happy return some years in the making!
