Marking the third single from the Meanjin quartet ahead of the release of their debut EP It Looks Better Than It Sounds on March 10, Tearing Up Inside is the type of emphatic anthem that makes you want to yell along until you’re hoarse in the throat; a polished and perfectly affable mix of driving beats, smooth melodics and an angsty-yet-uplifting emo tinge that ultimately closes out in reflective fashion.
Thematically centred around a failing relationship and the tortured introspection that often accompanies that terrain, Tearing Up Inside brings throwback pop punk hues alongside the universal notions of heartbreak; and while ultimately dealing in angsty subject matter, the end result will make anyone who has loved and lost feel seen and heard, as Two Times Shy throw their hearts and polished sonic wares firmly into the core of this latest track. “Tearing Up Inside is written about a relationship breakdown and how it feels to go through something so tormenting and heartbreaking,” the band recently shared of their brand new tune.

“Watching the one you love slip away, fall into the arms of someone else when there is nothing you can do about it; and although it tears you apart, you still love them and want to/will do everything you can to fix it. No matter how hard you try, the relationship meets its inevitable doom.” From taking out the crown in the Toowoomba Battle of the Bands competition last year to scooping up 10,000+ streams on Spotify and over 35,000 views on YouTube, Two Times Shy aren’t shy about memorably bursting into 2023 with their new single. Come embrace your emo side 2023-style, and get your ears around Tearing Up Inside before the brand new Two Times Shy EP drops next month.
