Sound-Exploring Los Angeles Duo TANGIENTS Reinjects COCTEAU TWINS Banger ‘HAZEL’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

18 March 2019

Los Angeles duo TANGIENTS is a “two-sided enigma, a dichotomy, a shadow and its’ reflection. Maybe they have something to prove. Maybe they can’t decide if they’re a modern day post-punk outfit or an early-80s-inspired shoegaze dreamscape weavers. Maybe it doesn’t matter, because it hits.”

Their brand new single is a cover of HAZEL, a stomping song by Scottish ethereal dream pop legends COCTEAU TWINS released as a B-side on their 1983 single ‘Peppermint Pig‘. The breathtaking performance of TANGIENTS inventive interpretation of this track is just astonishing. Massive tribal drums inject this reverberating banger with a gigantic beat from the get-go. When jigsaw guitars and singer Chelsea Ray‘s voodoo vox kick in Siouxsie and The Banshees pop up instantly in your aural imagination and when a sinistrous bass tries to take control in the final minute you’ll experience an imposing sonic finale. This is not a cover, it’s a ravishing recreation.

Inhale the energy right here…

Gaze Pop Duo TANGIENTS With Life-Affirming Debut Single ‘WHITE FOAM’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

23 May 2018

Band: TANGIENTS (Los Angeles, CA, US)

Who: “A post-punk, ambient ‘gaze-pop’ duo based in Los Angeles. Chelsea Ray’s intense, yet dream-like vocals can pierce as well as float over Be Hussey’s thick wall of sonics, resulting in
a noisy, aggressive, yet ethereal sound.”

Debut single inspired by singer Chelsea Ray‘s near-death experience. She explains: “In
2012, I underwent something traumatic that forever changed me. My heart stopped and
I was shocked back to life. The sparse, yet intense memories I have from this moment gave
me a completely different perspective. After ‘coming back,’ I felt that I was only a fragment
of the person I was before. Here I am a few years later, writing lyrics about it, and I feel lucky just to be here.”

Score: What a debut. ‘White Foam‘ rushes both nervously and excitingly, pushed by
jittery electronics, twitchy percussion and flashy guitar lines while singer Chelsea Ray’s wailing vox floats mysteriously over the magnetic orchestration. Her mystifying voice
has that haunting Bjôrk timbre which reinforces the supernatural tone of this profound song. Pretty special and compelling. Capture the spooky journey, strikingly translated to
an eye-catching video, right here…
