Australian pop singer songwriter, TIN, shares about how he turned a failed Grindr Date into his latest deliciously, catchy single.

“TIN” Official Music Video “Don’t Say His Name”

Many songwriters express their broken relationships in many different ways whether it be a vengeful Taylor Swift-like ode or a sombre Adele-like ballad. Australian pop singer songwriter, TIN, has chosen a different path to express his feelings, and it is certainly NSFW. Fresh off a Pride Festival Tour across the UK (and a sneaky show in Denmark too), his latest single titled Don’t Say His Name was in response to a failed date that he had with a boy off Grindr, with lyrics talking about sleeping with other men while still thinking of said Grindr boy.

Being blatantly crass, he sings ‘I’m gonna f**k him with you on my mind, I’m gonna f**k him ’til he sees the light’, and this explicitness translates into the brand new music video. In the three minutes of what could be an amateur soft-core porno, we follow TIN as he has a one night stand. During which time, the boy in question changes back and forth between two contrasting characters.

“The lyrics are more than just lustful hooks, they express one of the many ways that human beings deal with heartbreak. Some choose alcohol, and others choose substances while I chose sex and I wanted to share that experience in a raw and authentic manner. In the same vein, I also wanted to write about something that many of us do, but no one owns up to it!’
