Genesis / Underground

Tantrum Desire last surfaced on Technique with a taste of their forthcoming LP, in the form of Adventures in Space and Nightmare. In case you needed any more convincing just how monumental this album is going to be, it’s time for another glimpse at what’s to come.

In the beginning is Genesis. The biggest build you’re likely to hear any time soon gives way to precision-crafted interplay between constantly shifting riffs in the low and high registers and uncompromisingly tough drums. All this bound together with a digital-swing six-eight time signature, making this impossible not to move to.

Then we go Underground. Laura Bayston’s vocal is the perfect delivery system for Tantrum Desire’s production expertise. A quirky vibrato in the intro, combined with her elegantly controlled use of power and projection instantly set this track apart.

As the track drops, Laura’s voice is twisted and FXed into all manner of sculpture, successively delivering low-end drive, alto euphoria and even percussion. All this backed with a beat and bassline that leave you in no doubt that it’s time to get up.

Just like a typical Tantrum Desire build-up, these two tracks are bound to ratchet up the anticipation for the album that’s coming. So get ready for the drop.
