New York based electronic/synth-pop duo Tempers has just premiered on Noisey their dark driving, but cold new single “Undoing” (which can be listened to here) from their upcoming debut album “Services” which will be released on Berlin based label Aufnahme + Wiedergabe this Autumn.
“Undoing” feels as though the listener has been dropped into a freezing pitch black cave in an action based Super Nintendo game. That is not to say that this is a bad things, as actually it’s pretty darn rad. There is a sense of urgency where it feels like you have to just move and do whatever has to be done in order to get out and survive whatever situation you have been placed into (possibly against your will). Noisey describes “Undoing” as:
“Undoing” mixes in the dark with light, showing how industrial and gritty the music gets before hitting you with their undeniable catchiness. The bassy synth reverberates and crashes against the peaks and valleys of singer Jasmine Golestaneh’s voice. It takes influence from goth, darkwave and synthpop of the past, putting it under a new coat of black.
If you’re looking for some chilling blackness to slip into “Undoing” is more than a good way to go.
