TEMPERS – new album out now

Tempers’ new album New Meaning is distinctly nocturnal music, elegantly introspective and quietly intense. Jasmine Golestaneh’s voice is both ethereal and towering as Eddie Cooper breathes life into the precision of electronics, and of melodic intervals. 

New Meaning is about navigating the unknown, coping mechanisms and exploring the nature of choice. Its ten songs reflect on the creation of meaning as an access to liberation in times of transition and loss, speculating on the transformative potential that exists alongside the grief of living in a world that is in an ongoing state of crisis.

Throughout New Meaning, Golestaneh and Cooper’s production skews more evocatively greyscale, from new wave shadowplay to depressive disco to an elegy of hopeful resignation. The album’s themes are echoed in the evocative cover photo, Lost Hotel (2016) by Beijing-based photography artist Chen Wei.

New Meaning is a document of forking paths and fleeting transcendence, the celebration of instability and impermanence, of embracing “a constant state of becoming.” Ten anthems for a derailed age, fugitive and sympathetic, nightwalking through an “anguished city” towards a nameless future, poised for rebirth.

The album comes with a companion book of original artwork and lyrics. Golestaneh created a hand-made collage for each song, translating its sonic landscapes and lyrical themes into concrete images. The book is published by Old Habits Press – preview it here.

Tempers’ North American kicked off last night with a hometown show at NYC’s Elsewhere. Additional highlights include LA, San Francisco, Chicago, Seattle and more ahead of their UK/EU Summer run. See below for a full list of dates + find tickets here.
