Australian newcomer TIA GOSTELOW’s single, ‘Psycho’ narrates her own experiences with gaslighting in relationships.
She confides, “I constantly thought I was the issue, that everything was my fault and I kept apologizing for things that I later realised weren’t my fault at all. I feel like when you are in these circumstances, sometimes it feels like you’re going insane, I felt like I was turning into this psycho person and it seemed like nobody else saw where I was coming from.”
Tia came under radar with debut album, ‘Thick Skin’ in 2018. Released in Australia and New Zealand on her own label Lovely Records, the album scooped the Queensland Music Album of the Year Award. It features the hit single ‘Strangers’ which clocked up over nine million streams to date.
Since her impressive inception, Tia has garnered support from the likes of CLASH, Earmilk and Triple J and has toured across Europe as well as performing at major festivals in Australia, supporting the likes of Gomez, Frightened Rabbit, Lewis Capaldi, The Rubens, Ball Park Music and Boy & Bear.
The 20-year-old alt-pop songstress is currently putting the finishing touches on her second album with acclaimed producer Oscar Dawson (Holy Holy, Alex Lahey) that is scheduled for release later this year.
