I personally find Yves Tumor be to at their most compelling when they’re balancing visceral electronic experimentation with big, rocky hooks, either in a single track or across an entire albums worth of material; see: Safe In The Hands Of Love, in which you never quite know what’s lurking around the next corner. Their latest EP Asymptomatic World leans way further into the rockier of these two worlds, forgoing the crushed, fizzing synths in favour of prominent guitars and stadium-friendly vocals, so while it’s by no means my favourite release of theirs, it’s still comfortably better than pretty much everything else that came out last week.
I mean COME ON. How much insane talent can you pack into a single track. It’s amazing, because obviously it is. Absolutely ridiculous.
I love Yves Tumor. Safe In The Hands Of Love kinda passed me by on the first few listens, but after bascially everyone ranked it as one of the best albums of the year I went back to it and now I think it’s a complete masterpiece. This is taken from its upcoming album Heaven To A Tortured Mind, out in April, and it’s fantastic.
