It was in the early stages of COVID-19 lockdown that Emma Coyle and Joel Byrne, co-owners of Part Time Records, created PTR Singles Club – a new extension of the label that focuses on delivering a selection of new musical discoveries straight to your doorstep. Today they announce the first iteration of the Singles Club with singles from Adelaide duos Tiles and Siberian Tiger.
Dream pop duo Tiles first came to PTR’s attention in May with the release of their debut single ‘Red Wine’. Emma says of the discovery “Joel and I were already aware of Katie and Matt’s other musical projects having seen them play many times around town – but when we first heard Tiles we were both struck with nineties nostalgia. We felt their aesthetic would be a perfect complement for ‘Water The Plants’, one of the tracks from Siberian Tiger’s debut EP that we wanted to give a physical release”.
Made possible through funding from South Australia’s Music Development Office, Volume 1 of the Singles Club will be released gradually over the coming year and will feature 3 x split 7” singles available via parttimerecords.com as well as digitally. The vinyl release features cover artwork by Adelaide illustrator Luku and each copy will be individually hand-numbered and pressed on coloured vinyl.
