TY “DON’T WATCH THAT / WHAT YOU WANT” EP (BIG DADA)

Ty returns with a promo-only white label lump of goodness from his forthcoming, third and finest album, “Closer”.

“Don’t Watch That” finds Ty and production collaborator Drew hooking up the kind of guitar-stabbed funk that seems both rooted in the old skool and completely contemporary.
An utterly irresistible, utterly infectious rhythm, it’s topped off with a hilarious lyric from Ty in which he talks about the rumours and nonsense that wash around you on the internet and beyond as soon as anyone knows your name: “Apparently I walk with a thousand grands/ And
love fat girls dipped in marzipan.” “What You Want” returns to the ground that Ty made his own with “Groovement” and “Wait A Minute” from his Mercury-nominated album, “Upwards”. The fast, shimmying rhythm was originally beatoxed by Tailor McFerrin, son of Bobby “Don’t Worry Be Happy” McFerrin. Ty and Drew then built a tune around it, layering it up to include, amongst other things, a full horn section before Ty dropped yet another incisive and intelligent lyric. And this is just a taste. “Closer” is an album packed with humour, cleverness and heartfelt emotion,
another classic in Ty’s marvellous output. Come closer…
