Yves Tumor shifts, alters, and plays with the boundaries of contemporary art and culture in a boundlessly visceral and authentic sonic signature. With an arc that effortlessly graces rock, psychedelia, and electronica in a constant re-invention of pop music, comparisons only serve as limitations intended to define that which cannot be. Yves Tumor melds restraint and chaos in a soulful clarity; diluting reality by giving meaning to the abstract and allowing for dissonance to be seen and heard as harmony.
Yves Tumor has announced their most accomplished and anticipated album to date, Praise A Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds), set for release on March 17th via Warp Records with an accompanying world tour to commence at Coachella Festival. The album achieves new artistic heights for the project in an uncanny recalibration of pop music. This is Yves Tumor’s most intimate and personal statement to date, guiding the listener through a conceptually manifold spiritual journey –– circuitously weaving darkness to light, pop and innovation, cacophony to church-like calm. Picking up where the albums’ initial “God Is a Circle” single release left off, The album’s intoxicating melange of addictive melodies and adventurously executed arrangements is aptly demonstrated by “Echolalia,” the latest single + video. Both music videos are directed by visionary Jordan Hemingway (who helmed a previous Yves Tumor video ‘Secrecy Is Incredibly Important To The Both of Them’), that explores an emotive and transgressive world, brilliantly peppered with references of 70’s arthouse cinema.
