The core of Tempesst started more than a decade ago in the small coastal town of Noosa, Australia, with twin brothers, Toma and Andy Banjanin. Growing up in a musical family, the pair joined the church band at 14 years old and performed regularly for the next few years. It was through the church that the two met Kane Reynolds and Blake Mispieka, who years later now serve as the keyboard and the bass player for Tempesst.
This track will be featured on their debut album: “Must Be a Dream”, which will be released on September 30 via their own label Pony Recordings.
According to a press release, Tempesst vocalist Toma Banjanin says of the song: “It’s about a close friend who disappeared for a decade and returned as someone completely different, and it’s an ongoing trauma. When I connected the music to the lyrics to try and finish the song, it felt like it had a rolling rhythm, so the chorus fell into place from there. For me, this song carries a lot more emotional weight.”
