Yves Tumor shifts, alters, and plays with the boundaries of contemporary art and culture in a
boundlessly visceral and authentic sonic signature. With an arc that graces rock, psychedelia,
and electronica in a constant re-invention of modern pop music, comparisons only serve as
limitations intended to define that which cannot be. Yves Tumor melds restraint and chaos in a
soulful clarity; diluting reality by giving meaning to the abstract and allowing for dissonance to be
seen and heard as harmony.
“The quintessential performer, Tumor exudes Prince’s androgyny flare, D’Angelo’s
tender masculinity, Iggy Pop’s freakazoid mania, and Grace Jones’ magnetic mystique.”
–– The Austin Chronicle, Oct 2021
The groundbreaking artist continues to unlock conventional perceptions with a psychedelically
bent off-kilter rock offering, The Asymptotical World EP. Co-produced and engineered by
longstanding collaborator Yves Rothman, the EP includes the massive single, “Jackie”, also
co-written/produced by Chris Greatti (Yungblud, Poppy).
Accolades for the new EP include ‘Jackie’ as the #1 song of 2021 via Crack Magazine and in
Pitchfork's Top 25 songs of the year. Crushed Velvet is featured in Best of Spotify’s Indie for
2021 and in best songs of the year in Vogue Magazine.
This follows the widely celebrated album, ‘Heaven To A Tortured Mind’, written & composed by
Yves Tumor and produced by Yves Tumor & Justin Raisen (Sky Ferreira, Ariel Pink, Charli
XCX). Previously, Yves Tumor debuted with Warp Records in the critically acclaimed
genre-defying album ‘Safe In The Hands Of Love.’
Breakout singles "Gospel For A New Century", "Kerosene!", "Noid", "Licking An Orchid" and
"Lifetime" garnered praise from New York Times, WSJ, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, the FADER,
NPR and more. Yves Tumor is back on stage with their already legendary incendiary live band,
spanning a global tour scheduled for 2022. –– Илона Бочаро́ва
