London duo Tender, James Cullen and Dan Cobb, will be playing The Echo Los Angles on September 10th during their first US Tour. Their full length debut album Modern Addiction, currently on pre-order, will release September 1st on Partisan Records.
Modern Addiction is about duality, the unreliable polarity of human magnetics. From orgasm, to break-up, to silence, the record breaths closure to a relationship that has intensified, shattered, and healed. Modern Addiction is young, cold, urban, lonely, and an intrinsically modern look at the irrepressible desire to maintain a love, be it destined or doomed. While Modern Addiction often deals with the bleak realities of a love that’s fading, repeated listens offer a sense of optimism. It’s the relief that comes from getting through to the other side and provides fresh perspective to the idea of addiction, through the lens of love. For the listener, it’s the experience of being on both sides of the glass.
“We want it to make people connect with each other. We want to evoke emotion. We want people to dance.” Dan Cobb
