“Moving On is a bright-eyed indie-dance banger, digging into the same infectious hooks as you’d expect from bands like The Jungle Giants but with a slightly distinct twist” – PILERATS
“Rated this one 4 stars to begin with but had to bump it up another notch cos it really is the best I’ve heard from SAMETIME and represents an exciting new chapter for the band. Slick as per usual but they’ve unlocked a dizzy indie-disco touch that takes the track to another level. 4.5 stars” – Dave Ruby Howe, Triple j Unearthed
“This one will lift you higher! it’s got a big pop disco sheen to it with drips of empire of the sun in that chorus. 4 stars” – Declan Byrne, Triple J
“Nothing but good, infectious vibes in this summer jam! Love this guys! 4 stars” – Claire Mooney, Triple j
“Why do I feel like I’ve just won 10,000 tickets at the Timezone and I feel invincible like not even the claw machine can win against me?? THIS SONG HITS!! 4 stars” – Pip Massussen, Triple j
SAMETIME are multi-instrumentalists Sunshine Coast brothers Tim and Sam Aitken. Today they release their dance floor-ready new tune Moving On and unveil details about their forthcoming EP ‘Maybe We Can Get High?’. Packed full of flavour and energy, their infectious new single is the follow up to their 2020 singles, Get To Know Ya and Til Yr Not OK.
“Moving On’ is about reminiscing on the good times we had with friends growing up and how getting older got in the way. The decisions a person made on a night out that resulted in something worse than a hangover the next morning. The sweet sound of this song counteracts the lyrics and the bitterness of coming to terms with the fact people change and it sucks.” – SAMETIME
For fans of lo-fi, alt-pop acts like The 1975, Last Dinosaurs and Parcels, SAMETIME’s forthcoming EP ‘Maybe We Can Get High?’ features a collection of tracks which tells of the ecstatic uppers and brutal downers of youthful hedonism.
“We’re young male adults going through that phase of life where going out and getting “sloshed” every weekend is compulsory. Get To Know Ya is a bright, upbeat song about just going out and meeting someone that makes you feel good temporarily. Something To Feel explores the darker side of nightlife and being consumed by the search for a bigger, better high. The EP is a self reflection of us but also our generation as we navigate our way through young adulthood but making sure we have a good time doing it.” – SAMETIME
Despite their years (Tim, 22 and Sam, 19) they have spent the last 10 years developing a reputation as one of the Sunny Coast`s hardest working acts busking every weekend, and fine tuning their songwriting craft. In 2017 Sametime signed a long term publishing deal with Sony Music Publishing.
SAMETIME will be playing shows in support of their EP really soon!
