“TIRED” is his most raw and exposed single yet and channels Moses Sumney, Brittany
Howard and Blake Mills on this emotional ballad, letting down his walls and getting
vulnerable with listeners.
Armed with nothing but a bed of organs, dreamy guitar, and sleepy reverb, Yeo
draws the listener’s scope to rest gently on his lightly-treading vocals as he sings:
“All I need is a sign and I won’t feel tired / Tired, I’m tired no more.”
Yeo wrote the track in the midst of Melbourne’s lockdowns in 2020 alongside his previous single “OBSESSION” but are two sides of the same coin.
“TIRED is OBSESSION’s happy sibling–the one with a positive attitude. It was also
written in heavy Melbourne lockdown and during another injury rehab period,
however this time it contains optimistic promises of getting back to enjoying life
with loved ones,” Yeo shares.
The music video for “TIRED” will release on June 18 and will blend social realism with surrealism to tell the story of a blue-collar worker who yearns for more.
“TIRED” is the third taste of Yeo’s upcoming body of work TIRED, NO MORE. The
release will also include previously shared emo-R&B cut “OBSESSION” and ‘90s inspired bass-driven “U IN?” which features the return of his infamous keytar solo. Each single is accompanied by a cooking series of Yeo preparing and serving up
his favorite Asian comfort dishes.
