After her debut single “State of the Art”, Tia Gostelow has recently followed up with a new song:”Vague Utopia“. It has the distinct contemporary indie rock style that has enable her to earn recognition from Triple J Unearthed this year.
“Vague Utopia” is dense and harmonious, almost dreamlike. The Australian artist sings and evaluates the end of her adolescence. The music is perfectly loaded with nostalgia and doubt. As she wrote:

It’s that feeling of ‘almost’ – school’s almost over, we’re almost adults and almost in a world other than school.
Tia Gostelow is currently working on her EP set for release in 2017 and also looking forward to her East Coast tour in the same year. Speaking of this upcoming release, the rising star says:
I tend to develop songs, even happy ones, with minor chords so they can still sound melancholy even if I’m not writing about heartbreak. But most of my work is usually very chilled, so it’s perfect for a Sunday afternoon or a road trip, where you can feel comfortable and relaxed and just take the time to listen to the lyrics.
