More Kayex More Kayex

Sydney-based electronic duo Kayex are gearing up to release their debut EP tomorrow but we here at theMusic.com.au are stoked to host the exclusive online premiere for you today. 

The four-track release, titled Tempus In LA, does was it says on the tin, telling the story of the duo's time in LA. Kayex walked us through the EP exclusively ahead of its release. Check out what they had to say about it below!

Tempus I: Electric Fire

"We released Electric Fire a couple of months ago, prior to LA. It actually ended up being the spark that made us want to finish the EP, pack up and relocate to LA for a bit."

Tempus II: I’m Not In Love

"We recorded I’m Not In Love on our iPhones one night after going to a college football game. Tom bumped into an old flame from Yallingup (his home town) at the game and that feeling reminded him of being 16 and bumping into his crush at a house party. So we wrote a sad song really late at night about how Tom isn’t in love."

Tempus III: Ready, Go!

"Ready, Go! was inspired by long drives and listening to the local radio. We noticed so much of the music on the radio was bass heavy which is where it all started for us with My Friends... so we decided to wind it back and make an LA-flavoured version with a few different twists and turns."

Tempus IV: How Far Would You Go?

"This song literally came out of nowhere. Tom was mimicking Sting as a joke but we ended up really liking the way it sounded against the music. It nearly didn’t make the cut but for some reason this track has a special place in our hearts and reminds us so much of this time we spent together in LA just hanging out, hanging fun and enjoying ourselves. That what this track is about."
