Experimental music and dark electronica can sometimes go hand in hand. However, for as many who have tried, few have done so with such intensity as Yves Tumor. Breaking bounds with every release, his new album Heaven Is A Tortured Mind is due this Friday. Taking one more step past many, his new double single “Romanticist/Dream Palette” should convince you that the producer is on a level few can touch.
The track opens like a chill soulful jam where these short break beats linger in the background. The way the vocals dance while these distorted guitars begin slicing into the background is astounding. When the chorus comes in there’s a cluster of sounds and multiple samples that fall a top the vocals creating a whole new vibe. When things change direction they do so like fireworks appearing in the night. The mix of beats and vocals segue into a new sound that’s catchy but still very different from what you’re used to. There’s a heft here that exists because all of the Yves Tumor music is that way, taking you to a new place in the process.
The song can be streamed above or wherever you stream music. Heaven Is A Tortured Mind can be preordered on multiple formats directly from Warp Records ahead of its April 03 release date.
