From his very first appearance the Tempted Dissident
(Te/DIS) has been blessed with a distinctive style; with every new publication
this has been further developed, but very wisely never broken away from.
Therefore we find also on the new Te/DIS album clear, direct elektroniks with no effects lash-ups.
In combination with the characteristic voice, once again wonderful ear-catching pieces evolve, carrying the DNA of early Synth-Pop, which still had an inherent pleasant roughness and which can also be found here. Phantom Light, Hidden in Plain Sight, or Where Demons Live are worthy of mention.
However with Te/DIS’ third album we also discover an expansion into darker spheres – more muted sound, more noise, more reduction, more pain: alienation from other people, the own existence not perceptible, submerging. Subsistence instead of Existence.
The idea of one’s own relevance dissolves – become transparent, disappearing. Transparent Subsistence.
