DOWNLOAD: Tempers - Eyes Wide Wider (MP3)
NYC record label Pendu Sound, who are known for the dark and brooding (Chelsea Wolfe, Starred), have just launched a new digital single series today (Valentine's Day). A press release describes the series...
Some of the bands who are releasing singles will go on to release full-length albums on Pendu Sound. Each hand-selected band will release a digital-single with accompanying video as well as a bonus track. The video is an important element of this series and all releases will have original videos to accompany the track. Pendu Sound is a big advocate of artists and bands which possess the "total aesthetic"; highly-stylized immersive content that enhances the experience and intensifies the overall vision.The first installment of this series comes from NYC post-punk duo Tempers, who you may have just caught with Majical Cloudz at Death by Audio. The single, "Eyes Wide Wider," is a solid cut with thick guitar, big atmospheres, and the knowledge that there's nothing wrong with making a dark song a catchy one. You can download the track for free above, watch its video below, and download it along with its b-side, "Hell Hotline," on iTunes. Both tracks were produced by Damian Taylor (Bjork, TRUST).
