“Among the most interesting artists working today”, writes online magazine Pitchfork in their review of Yves Tumor’s new album ‘Heaven to a Tortured Mind’ (8.5). In their previous albums Tumor explored noise, ambient and pure pop. Now Tumor returns like Prince on steroids, a self-proclaimed sex god, effortlessly combining soul, kraut and glamrock. Check out the phenomenal ‘Gospel For A New Century’ and its equally phenomenal video. Or, better yet, witness first-hand Tumor’s latest evolution, live at Voo?uit.
US producer Yves Tumor first blipped the radar with their self-produced debut record ‘Serpent Music’. The follow-up ‘When Man Fails You’ was a gem full of gothic soundscapes. ‘Safe in the Hands of Love’ offers psychedelic pop ballads and dark neo disco. With ‘Heaven to a Tortured Mind’ Tumor seems set to reach an even wider audience. “In the best sense of the phrase, Yves Tumor is off in a world of their own”, wrote The Guardian.
