Tyler Shamy is back with another hit with โ€œCharacteristicsโ€!

The new single is catchy and hard-hitting. Working with famed producers Koosen and Green Bull of Strange Fruits, itโ€™s no surprise we canโ€™t get this beat out of heads. 

We get another taste of Tylerโ€™s vocal range in this single. His performance gives the track dimension; he manages to take a fun, high energy sound and give it emotion and depth. Despite its upbeat sound, the lyrics profile a toxic relationship between two lovers. Tyler expressess the frustration of one whoโ€™s tired of being used and undervalued. The subject decides to finally take a stand for himself and refuses to continue on the hamster wheel. Itโ€™s a heartfelt, honest moment and leaves listeners on a high when he decides to put himself first. The message is empowering but in a subtle way that gives both voice to victims and good music for the casual listener.

If Tyler sounds familiar you may have heard his previous release, โ€œF*cking to Forgetโ€, which we reviewed on Popbulb. Weโ€™re excited to share yet another stream-worthy track from the singer-songwriter (and voice over) artist! Check out โ€œCharacteristicsโ€ below!
