Maybe it’s just me but society has taken abbreviations to a whole new level. Aside from trying to outsmart your cellphone’s character limit in text messages, I’m finding that abbreviations are becoming common social knowledge more and more. And the sad part is that I’ve fallen behind. Much like the Jonas Brothers, I feel that my knowledge is somewhat outdated. In a case of brutal honesty, within the last few months I’ve had to turn to Google for YOLO and CTFO definitions. So with the recent realization that my societal tabs have fallen to the wayside, yet again I turned to Google for this next artist.
Producing under the name of Tyr, it’s no surprise that my mind was drawing blanks when it came to the possible reasons for the name selection. But upon my findings on the great world wide web, it turns out that Tyr is actually a reference to a god in Norse mythology. As the god of “single combat, victory and heroic glory”, Tyr is burdened by a heavy title for someone who is only 18. But as I’ve come to prove before, age has nothing to do with the level of talent. Keeping his roots firmly planted in Sin City, Tyr is more than capable of throwing out tracks that are bigger than the wages and entertainment from the place that confines him. Much like the majority of new artists, Tyr’s material has already found the posting likes of prominent sites such as thissongissick.com, dubstep.net and ranked 3rd for his remix of “Kyoto” on earmilk.com. Altogether, Tyr manages to mash up rhythmic variations of wobbles and dark bass in to a harmonious culmination of energized swagger. So with his talent already thriving in its’ infancy, this teen’s future is as bright as the blinding lights that surround him.
