Tempers new single and album on the way! Plus some tour dates.

New York City duo, comprised of Jasmine Golestaneh and Eddie Cooper, aka Tempers specialise in a sleek strain of low-lit poetic synth-pop. Today the band have announced their new album ‘New Meaning‘ is set for release April 1st via DAIS and have shared the first single from the record “Unfamiliar“. 

Speaking about the track, Tempers’ vocalist Jasmine Golestaneh reveals, “‘Unfamiliar’ explores the idea of progress, and what qualities might be needed to actualise it. So often change is just a rebranding of the same structures and conventions, history repeating itself. But also on a personal level, it’s hard not to repeat mistakes, habits are so seductive. I was thinking about the power of liminal space, and how building a tolerance to unfamiliarity might be a revolutionary act.”
With their self-produced New Meaning, Tempers present an album about navigating the unknown, coping mechanisms and exploring the nature of choice. Its ten songs reflect on the creation of meaning as an access to liberation in times of transition and loss. Speculating on the transformative potential that exists alongside the grief of living in a world that is in an ongoing state of crisis.

This is distinctly nocturnal music, elegantly introspective and quietly intense, born of “living in a society that is still a dream of itself.” Tracks like “Unfamiliar,” “Nightwalking,” and “Sightseeing” distill the Tempers template to icy pop perfection, drum machinery framed in shivering reverb, Golestaneh’s voice both ethereal and towering, simultaneously within and above. Cooper speaks of production ideas regarding “human architecture,” breathing life into the precision of electronics, and of melodic intervals “on the exact edge between major and minor, severe and sweet.”
