Evolving from his previous acoustic pop roots, Tyler Okun's Debut EP, "The City", will capture the excitement of what it's like to live in a big city with exciting instrumentals, glorious harmonies, and infectious beats. Tyler ensures you will be in for a ride like no other with this captivating EP.
"I wanted this song specifically to give the listener a sense of the excitement you can feel the first time you enter a big city. How it can feel like just one big party with all the lights and colors in the sky. My first time in NYC really did that for me."
"I think we live in such an immediate culture when it comes to relationships now. The act of just swiping left or right can ultimately plan your entire night for you. And as scary as that is, sometimes it can be fun to just let go and fall in love with someone after one night out. This song hopes to make sense of what's going through someone's mind on one of those nights."
"Sometimes you just gotta let loose, and there's no better place to do that then on the dance floor. Taking ownership of yourself saying I'm here, I'm movin', I'm groovin', nobody's gonna stop me. I feel like that's pretty beast."
"Oh but how it can all go wrong! Nothing's worse than a rough breakup. Especially the ones that come out of nowhere, and the reasoning is never made completely clear to you. But I want people to know you can come out stronger. I wanted this song to be my strength of saying I didn't ever need that kind of relationship in my life, and no one else does either."
"It's 3 AM, pouring rain, and I'm walking home from a night out partying in NYC. I dropped all my friends off and it's only me now. Me and the seemingly endless blocks until I get back to where I'm spending the night. Where does the mind go? Well, unfortunately mine can go to regret. Did I do something wrong? Why do all romantic relationships feel like they're on a conditional timer? I know I'm not the only one who does this. And I wanted the album to end with the visualization of the solemn end of a great night that no one ever really talks about."
