IV  YVES TUMOR - THE ASYMPTOTICAL WORLD

catalog ref: CB1517




SKU:    004-CB15/17
First previewed over a year ago live at the White Oak Music Hall, March 2020, the opening track ‘Jackie’ conjures a scenario of a heartbreak and the desire for love. As shown in Jackie’s trippy music video, the world seems to be reaching ultimatum and Yves cries out to their lover ‘I ain’t sleeping, refuse to eat a thing’. The self-inflicted pain of the lyrics over Jackie’s distorted guitar crescendos emphasises the realism of the song’s heartbreak. Love is a recurring theme of many Yves Tumor songs consistently captured so well, notable mentions include: Honesty, Kerosene! and Super Stars.

Though Jackie was the EP’s staple track, there is no doubt that track 2 provides an equally chilling experience. Crushed Velvet’s intro opens with an increasingly amplified electronic cry before Yves sings in their slightly reverberated voice ‘Crushed Velvet, I’m in heaven. Feel myself when, I’m in crushed velvet.’ Seeming to be the only thing keeping them sane, their lyrical focus on the glamorous fabric only precedes the tremolo’d reverb at the song’s climax. A climax which ejects a tumultuous animalistic cry. A cry reminiscent of the eruptive shriek on the 2018 track ‘Licking an Orchid’. It’s a perfect outburst of emotion before Tumor concludes the track in a ring of pedal boarded distortion.

The more intense, upbeat song ‘Secrecy Is Incredibly Important to Both of Them’ feels almost like an inter-dimensional chase through time with its drum loop carried throughout to uphold the songs pace. Being the longest track on the album, the intense freedom in dancing to the song truly gets you lost within ‘the chase’, almost ceasing to end. Though Yves lets the soundscape control the majority of the track, after countless listens, you’re able to perfectly time Yves’ spaced-out lyrics like, ‘How can I miss you?’ whilst rocking out. A subtly effective touch.
