FRESH: ‘This Is’ (EP) – Tyrer

Tyrer unveils emotional official video for “Showgirl”

London-based singer-songwriter Tyrer has unveiled the affecting official video for her track “Showgirl”. The moving visual tells the tale of a burlesque dancer who, behind the glitz and glamour, is deeply unhappy with their current situation. The emotional, cinematic video proves an ideal match for Tyrer’s honest, heart-on-sleeve songwriting. Exploring themes of perfection, vulnerability, escapism and empowerment, Tyrer also appears in the video as a guardian angel type figure for the struggling performer.

“I truly believe that the idea of being perfect and trying to fit that mould can have a negative effect on your mental health,” Tyrer explains. “It’s about the everyday struggle but finding a release in which you can be anyone you want to be, a character as such. That’s why I thought the use of a dancer in the video would be a perfect way to portray this, Tyrer herself explains. “I also wanted to touch upon what young women in creative industries have to deal with on a daily basis; sexual harassment. How it has an effect on someone and how it happens so often it becomes normal, I feel that Chris who directed the visual, portrayed and captured this beautifully”.

“Showgirl” also features on “This Is”, Tyrer’s freshly released debut EP that deftly delivers vulnerability through a unique blend of alternative pop fused with jazz and soul. Working with Oscar Scheller and KXNGS, the five-track project shines a spotlight on her piercing vocal range – singing ability that suggests Tyrer is an artist with some serious staying power. This Is followed her two previous tracks, “Times We Had” in 2018 and last year’s “Pieces”. She previously explained: “The music I love connects with me like film, I look up to those artists who open up in a real honest fashion and their lyrics take me with them”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
