Their dark electronica sets haunting songwriting to a sinister disco beat, pop melodies floating in an almost industrial soundscape.
Singles from their debut album 'Services' — ‘Eyes Wide Wider’, ‘Hell Hotline’ (mixed by Damian Taylor (Bjork)), ‘Strange Harvest’ and 'Undoing' (mixed by Kevin McMahon (Swans)) received coverage across US and EU blogs including Pitchfork, The Fader, V Magazine, Vice, and Interview. Tempers' new EP, 'Fundamental Fantasy', featuring a remix by Joakim, was released by The Vinyl Factory in February 2017.
«The mechanistic aspects of „Strange Harvest“ remain constant
throughout, an insistent thump that's halfway between Factory and Wax
Trax!, while Jasmine Golestaneh's vocals become increasingly distorted
and blown-out. Within its four minutes, the slow burn of „Strange
Harvest“ reaches a point of self-immolation..»
«Hell Hotline,» a slice of achingly melodic, drum machine-driven
guitar-pop seems the sum of its own subtly shaded paradoxes: downcast
and buoyant, terse and expansive, icy and sentimental. Today, they're
debuting a Bela Borsodi-directed clip for the cut, underscoring the
song's propulsive chug with fills of strobing color."
«They're a ticking time bomb at this point, ready to blow up at any minute.»
«A band that makes music so resolutely otherworldly; songs like „Strange
Harvest“ and „Hell Hotline“ are heavy on atmosphere — dissonant guitars
and murky beats bouyed aloft by Golestaneh's crystalline vocals.»
«Distinctly dark and throbbing — it's like they've latched onto a
perfect formula and given it an extra jolt of life, for good luck.»
