Tempers, comprised of Jasmine Golestaneh and Eddie Cooper, have been diligently carving out their own niche within dark indie, electronica and synth-pop circles. Since the first series of singles, the New York based duo has been solidifying their unique identity of rigorous electronic production blended with instinctual, unleashed vocals. The latest acclaimed release “Private Life” (Dais Records) refines their dreamy mélange into atmospheric songs exploring psychological complexities and modern existence.
Widely influenced by Fleetwood Mac via Kraftwerk to Joy Division and their individual backgrounds in London and New York, the pair evolved quickly into their singular identity on debut album “Services”. Released on cult imprint Aufnahme + Wiedergabe and including underground dancefloor hit “Strange Harvest”, the record led to extensive international touring and sold out shows. Their 2017 EP “Fundamental Fantasy” was released as a result of The Vinyl Factory’s Volcano Extravaganza artist residency on the Aeolian island of Stromboli.
Tempers’ versatile interest for the arts led to the 2018 release “Junkspace”, collaborating with famed architect Rem Koolhaas through samples of his interview discussing the deconstructed banality and overlooked grace of 20th century shopping mall culture. The record is available in the world’s most select cultural hotspots, from The New Museum in New York to Walther Kӧnig museum stores throughout Europe, a testament to Tempers’ love for the experimental and original, and their ability to defy categorization.
