NYC duo Tempers are releasing their “Fundamental Fantasy” EP this Friday February 24th via The Vinyl Factory. It’s a follow-up to the band’s 2015 debut “Services” which won praise from the likes of Pitchfork, The Fader, Stereogum and Noisey to name a few.
“‘Fundamental Fantasy’ is about exploring the creative scenery of romantic illusions. Our need for them, how we justify them to ourselves, that moment when the imagined story line collides with reality. The ways we fictionalize people to fit into the narratives we have about love – to reflect our own beliefs, virtues and flaws. It is about celebrating fantasies swelling and getting undone, so we can pick up the pieces and craft new ones that serve us better’
The duo (Jasmine Golestaneh and Eddie Cooper) create an emotional and tonal tension of sensual and mechanical impulses with their brand of dark electronica that sets haunting songs to a sinister disco beat and pop melodies floating in an almost industrial soundscape.
Here in an exclusive Discobelle premiere, Paris-based producer Joakim remixes the band’s latest single “Tail In My Mouth” into a highly hypnotic dark, leftfield electroish remix that’s propelled forward with a steadfast beat.
