Welly Records’ Tyson Nemukula moved to NZ from South Africa when he was 15 years old. Now 22, he’s studying towards his Bachelor of Commercial Music at Massey University in Wellington, and over the last few months has quietly released a number of tunes from his bedroom.
Save Me, the single from Tyson’s upcoming EP, is out today. A collaborative effort, it starts on an otherworldly Life Is Strange soundtrack vibe (shout out to Ari Gurunathan absolutely acing the sparse, shimmering guitar part), before added beats turn the song into a heartfelt electronic pop ballad. Meet the man behind the music.
