Taylor Roche — better than home

Auckland-based artist Taylor Roche returns with new single “better than home”

Taylor Roche is not only becoming one of New Zealand’s most popular TikTok personalities, he’s also becoming one of our favourite emerging artists. Known for his infusion of 80s and 90s nostalgia with modern day synth-pop and R&B, he’s been building a solid catalogue that’s worth a listen.

Today, he returns with his brilliant new single “better than home”— a stunning track that takes a sonically softer direction than previous releases “day&night” and “lovemesober”.

His alluring vocals perfectly matches Auckland-based producer Joel Jones’ captivating production to create an infectious vibe that leaves you wanting more. Lyrically, he reflects on the feeling of being stuck in one place for too long.

“When the world opened back up in 2022, I was desperate to leave again as it felt like everyone around me was going off and chasing their dreams. It triggered an insecure attachment to the idea that I wanted to be something more than what I was, in my career and in life. Writing this song sort of released me from those thoughts.” Taylor Roche.
