Bryan Estepa releases new song 'Trick Off The Light' featuring Josh Pyke as collaborator

01/18/2021 05:33:21 AM

Bryan Estepa kicked off the year with a spankin' new single off a collaboration with a critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Josh Pyke.

Estepa's new song, titled Trick Of The Light came off the heels of a somewhat good year when he released 'Admit Now Pay Later,' the second single off the album 'Sometimes I Just Don't Know' which made it big on Rolling Stone Australia, NME Australia, and strong national radio airplay – most especially on 2ser FM in Sydney.

Estepa has always had an undeniable ear for hooks. Combined with classic pop and rock arrangements, (like his heroes You Am I, The Beatles, and Wilco) his songs always possess a timeless quality. He’s proved it over and over again across six acclaimed albums and live shows in Australia, Japan, the USA, UK, Spain, Sweden, and the Philippines.  

This time around, Estepa combines heavenly melodies and a melancholic air on this irresistible slice of indie guitar pop, singing about acceptance, letting go, and allowing yourself to feel whatever it is that comes out while you’re treading new waters. As always with his songwriting, there are layered poetic brushstrokes in the way Estepa blends and informs his songs with multiple meanings. 
“I also like the idea that the presence of light does not necessarily signal happiness or life but can also mean that emotions and perception can be blurred by its appearance,” said the Syndey-based Filipino singer-songwriter. 
Estepa had nothing but good words after seeing Pyke's ability to enhance the inherent strengths of Estepa’s songs. “It's exciting watching Josh work!” Estepa said of the ARIA and APRIA award-winning music artist/producer. “You sense that his creative light is always on and he needs to get his ideas out quickly before it starts to flicker. He takes on what I think the song’s direction might be but adds a couple of detours that are normally right on the money.” 
“Bryan’s a great writer and collaborator," Pyke said as he reciprocates the praise. “He’s got a classic pop sensibility but is really open to feedback and experimentation which made my job as a producer really fun and free.” 
Sonically, there’s beautiful weightlessness to the production and instrumentation that gracefully carries the song. Guitars sparkle and lightly jangle amid some sublime piano, backing vocals, and percussive elements that add unique detailing to the melodic richness of the track.

Bryan Estepa’s ‘Trick of the Light’ is now available on all streaming and digital platforms worldwide via Lilystars Records.
