Mannequin Mailorder

EN

One of the hippest bands on the underground scene is //TENSE// from Houston and their latest offering on Mannequin Records is one of their strongest works so far.

They had been previously discovered by the French Desire-label which undoubtedly had a lot to do with their 80’s sound which has seen them share a stage with Nitzer Ebb.

The band's ingredients stand out: tight bass-sound, a drum machine and an ice-cold sound that lies between classic EBM, the new wave sound of the (early) Human League and (later) Gang Of Four. And of course we mean that song that was about love for a man in an uniform.

This maxi is a limited edition of 500 copies and somewhere in September you can expect some European dates from //TENSE//. You can be sure that Peek-A-Boo will keep you updated.

Een van de meest toonaangevende groepen van dit moment is ongetwijfeld het uit Houston afkomstige //TENSE// die met deze maxi op Mannequin zonder twijfel één van hun sterkste dingen tot dusver hebben afgeleverd.

Ze werden eerder reeds opgemerkt door het Franse Desire-label en dit heeft zonder twijfel alles te maken met hun 80’s geluid dat hen reeds samen met Nitzer Ebb op het podium gebracht heeft.

De ingredriënten van deze groep zijn overduidelijk: strakke bassen, een drummachine en een ijskoud geluid dat ergens het midden houdt tussen klassieke EBM-geluiden en de new wave zoals we die kenden van de (vroegere) Human League en de (latere) Gang Of Four en hiermee bedoelen we inderdaad dat nummertje over de liefde voor de man in dat uniform.

Deze maxi is in gelimiteerde versie uitgebracht op 500 exemplaren en ergens in September mag je je verwachten aan een Europese toer van deze //TENSE//.
