Sydney-based pop princess turned bass badass, Sypress, is about to unleash her new single, Bother Me on 12th March ahead of an Australian tour throughout March and April. The track draws influence from the builds and euphoric atmos sounds of Kaskade and the production style of Chase Zera and will be the second tech house banger off her debut EP of the same name which is due out in June.
Bother Me combines high-powered Bass/Tech House with Sypress’s signature electric pop-esk vocals and is designed to make listeners, “Feel powerful, sexy and optimistic about how good love can be,” according to the brainchild behind Sypress, Isy Piper.

Produced by Aaron Bannie (NightTales and Third Floor) and Mixed & Mastered by Brendan Zacharias at Cirrus Audio, an earlier version of Bother Me, was originally intended for Bannie’s own release. “I gave him some reference tracks of some production I really liked and when I came into the studio he was like, ‘So I started making this tune. I almost wanted to keep it for myself but you inspired it so let’s use it for your EP if you like it.’
I heard the intro synth and was sold! My best friend, FOSTYR, and I spent the afternoon writing a demo together and then a few weeks later I got into the studio with Cam Nacson and recorded the vocals.”
Aside from being Sypress’ sophomore single – her first release, Back2U came out last November – Bother Me holds special, more personal meaning for her. “Jesse, aka FOSTYR, unfortunately, is not with us anymore and this makes this music even more special to me. Every time I hear it I remember us spending hours laughing and messing around in my home studio recording the demo. Rest in peace, angel.”
After growing up on a 60ft sailing yacht at sea until she was 16, Sypress, completed an audio degree, learned to DJ and moved to Sydney where she quickly became known for her energetic live closing sets that transform ordinary commercial tracks into epic, bassy, Tech House bangers.
Sypress has previously supported acts such as GFlip, Winston Surfshirt and Bag Raiders to name a few, and has also played events for Adidas and Falls Festival.
“I had a pretty rough upbringing and music really gave me a positive spark in my heart and soul. A reason to do, a reason to be. I love creating and performing so much and I feel so blessed that I found the thing that drives me and makes me so happy and motivated about life.”
You can catch Sypress throwing down on stages across the country this March/April. Bother Me single was released on all streaming platforms 12th March 2021.
