Ty tells PopMatters, “Sometimes, we find ourselves in relationships that hold us back from things we want in our lives, whether it be a dream, a personal goal, a break from routine, or a sense of self. This can be hard for someone to realize and deal with, especially when you still care about the other person and have to accept the fact that while you may still love them and want to be with them, there is a difference between wants and needs. Better Off is a song that explores that difference by talking about coming to terms with the need to be alone and the process of communicating that with a significant other.”
“For the music video, I wanted to involve a narrative that was unique to the video while still staying true to the song. I’m so fortunate to have been able to work with Alexander Breaux, who introduced a ton of different ideas and concepts to the project and brought everything to life in such a special way. We managed to shoot everything over three days with an extremely small DIY setup and had such a blast doing it. I couldn’t be more proud of what we were able to create and can’t wait to work with him on more projects in the future.”
Ty Trehern is no stranger to difference. In fact, it’s the concept of difference that fuels his latest musical effort, ‘Dear Dichotomy’, a record filled with the highs and lows of inner emotions learning to co-exist and find their home within the mind of the alternative singer/songwriter from small-town Long Beach, MS. Channeling a wide variety of different influences and embracing his dynamic, high-energy style, Trehern creates something within his music that is as sonically fluid as it is personal.
