ARTIST SIGNED TO BARK AT YOUR OWNER
SWEDISH ARTIST TIMBERLY SIGNED TO BARK AT YOUR OWNER.
"Swedish Indie-rock artist Timberly was born out of a failed drag persona and a need to express identity.
While growing up in the underground culture of Swedish Punk and Metal, Timberly had goals of incorporating elements of pop, funk and electronic that were often dismissed by his peers. Growing tired of the elitism and restrictions of the genres, Timberly decided to reject any form of defining label for their music. Instead, finding and incorporating inspiration from unconventional sources.
With a voice that moves from buttery lows to shrieking highs, they explore gender and sexuality from a deeply frustrated P.O.V. Incorporating fuzzy distortion, HUGE 80s drums and ambient shoegaze soundscapes to create a soundscape that is both nostalgic yet boundary pushing. Timberly stands on the shoulders of legendary acts like Janis Ian, The Cure, Cyndi Lauper and Placebo as well as contemporary artists like Mitski, Poppy and Black Country, New Road.
Whether it be performing in high-heel gothic drag or busking behind a guitar, Timberly wants to challenge but puts entertainment before anything else.
Remember that it's all symbolic and means stuff"
