TIFFY is the fuzz pop/soft punk project led by multi-instrumentalist Tiffany Sammy. Already making waves with two acclaimed EPs, Asian-American artist Tiffany Sammy announced her debut LP So Serious due out Nov. 3 via Totally Real Records / Dollhouse Lightning. This forthcoming collection of songs is a stirring coming-of-age narrative outlining the tumultuous path through social media, social disconnection, heartbreak and the drive for achievement. Currently Boston-based, Sammy grew up in California and fell in love with the crunchy and catchy rock that dominated ‘90s radio airplay. Heavily influenced by bedroom pop and punk rock distilled through her compositional magic, TIFFY has arrived with So Serious—a record that’s the most potent realization yet of her uniquely self-established “soft punk” genre. This is music that brims with unmistakable personality, with lyrics that might feel as if they’ve been lifted from your brain. Having your mind read never felt so good.
TIFFY’s hook-loaded confessional songwriting recalls the dusky, kaleidoscopic musical approach of indie rock contemporaries Speedy Ortiz and Jay Som with irresistible melodies that harken to peak-era Weezer. The lushly slack “Don’t Take It Personally” was inspired by an experience with a friend growing distant during lockdown, a heavenly church organ breakdown adding to the song’s confessional feel. The massively anthemic “In Jest” is built around a chewy riff and the act of taking the piss without getting too hurt about it, while the serpentine shoegaze of “Vying” is accompanied by Sammy’s musings about the digital age’s attention economy. Then there’s the winsome punk-pop of “Social Sliding,” which captures the generational yearning to detach from the social ladders we all continue to climb in vain. So Serious is a monumental debut—raw and honest, packed with melody and grit, and delivered with pure unvarnished sincerity leaving a permanent mark on its listeners. With countless shows under her belt, establishing herself as a formidable live presence in the Boston and New England music scenes, TIFFY will kick off a regional Northeast tour this fall with appearances in NYC, Boston, Providence and more.
