Tempers create architecture within the searing thrum; concrete tones in ghost form.

Biography

Tempers are Jasmine Golestaneh and Eddie Cooper, a New York-based synth/goth/electro/rock duo. Their music inhabits a realm of opaque romance. Delphic vocals tower precariously over propulsive beats, and shimmering, static-like synths merge with guitars that swell and vanish.Their live performances are a portal into a red-lit shadow world, exploring the thin line between freedom and oblivion. Jasmine invokes a kind of Leonard Cohen muse, channeling a Blue Velvet dialectic of hypnotic abandonment and illuminated purpose. Beside her, Eddie is a dispassionate master of ceremonies, a sphinx-like solidity in the ether.

Lyrics

EYES WIDE WIDER

Written By: Jasmine Golestaneh

Mouth full of feathers
you battered the songbird
I planted in your garden
so you could have in your head
my dark and heavenly whistle

And we will see what we see, and then...

Mountain to mountain
Circus of dreams
Never fall over
Eyes getting wider

The fountain you sent me
has no blood or melody
no flood, nor curtsy
but it keeps good company
with formless things that enchant me

UNDOING

Written By: Jasmine Golestaneh

Somewhere under the city street
there is a child that we did bury
because summer burnt her little cheeks
by winter her eyes grew weary

And now I wonder if she’ll ever rise
that girl we couldn’t carry

Somewhere over the city sky
there is a feast laid out for sharing
say you're starving but you lost your hunger
and one thing leads to the other

And now I wonder if she'll ever rise
that girl we couldn't carry
