Pendu Sound doesn’t play by the rules. So fuck tooth-rotting chocolate, juvenile teddy bears, and bouquets of gas station roses. For Pendu — the home of Chelsea Wolfe, Sasha Grey’s aTelecine, and White Ring, among others — this past Valentine’s Day was all about the singles. (Bad pun sorry whooooa Cathy ack.) See, the NYC-based label unveiled its SUPER SPECIAL ALL NEW single series on February 14, with the digital release of the track “Eyes Wide Wider” from the post-punk duo Tempers. Tempers, like many of the bands to be featured as part of the series, will release a full-length on Pendu later this year.
So what all is involved with this singles series? Well, you get a download of the main track, plus the accompanying video full of swirling guitars, forests, and people in creepy veils. In this case, Tempers’ “Eyes Wide Wider” was mixed by Damian Taylor, who has worked with Trust and Björk. You can peep the video below and stream before picking it up yourself from iTunes. Tempers are the NYC-based duo of Floridian collage artist Jasmine Golestaneh and !K7 and Eskimo recording artist Eddie Cooper.
