Following his ethereal cover of Viva Forever by the Spice Girls, Australian queer singer songwriter, TIN covers the iconic ‘NSync hit, Bye Bye Bye. The track is completely revamped, with its video inclusive of all the eroticism that you secretly wanted as a teenager. The video features TIN with several other boys partaking in various antics that one would want an ex to see, post-break-up. Highlights include a Pokemon threesome, a kiss between Batman and Robin and some armpit licking in reference to TIN’s previous video, ‘Don’t Say His Name’.
“I love this song and had been wanting to cover it for a while. Given everything happening in the world at the moment, I just wanted to do something fun and something for me. My intention is to bring a modern twist to a song that really shaped me as a musician and that others enjoy a sexy moment of nostalgia.
It is obvious that the four cast members plus TIN represent the original boy band. What’s distinct however, is the diversity of the cast. This aspect of popular culture has steadily evolved over the decades and contributes to the modernisation of the song, aside from its more current production value.
“Diversity and representation are important to me and I always make an effort to be inclusive in my work. Growing up watching all these boy bands, I found it difficult to see myself in their shoes. I hope that through my efforts, I provide a greater opportunity for my younger audience to be inspired by seeing what’s possible for them.”
Bye Bye Bye is a taster of TIN’s latest sound for his original EP to be released later this year.
