Tia Gostelow Proves Her Shapeshifting Prowess on ‘Head Noise’

The Queensland singer-songwriter hits the right notes on her third album

Tia Gostelow


Formerly a rising indie rocker, Tia Gostelow proves her shapeshifting prowess on her latest offering. Pleasant pop production — highlight “Spring to Life” does just that with some smooth sax and piano lines — abounds on the album.

However, while the Indigenous singer-songwriter’s new songs might be more gleaming and glistening, the striking lyricism about the complex emotions of finding love and friendship in your twenties remains.
