Tyler Matthew Oyer self-released EP NO TEMPLE on July 15, with a music video for the title-track premiering on AQNB today. The Los Angeles-based ‘goth-pop’ performer takes notes from transgressive shock artist Kembra Pfahler, while drawing influence from a number of queer artists and producers like Peaches and Kenneth Anger, SOPHIE and Perfume Genius.
NO TEMPLE is produced by Ben Babbitt (How To Dress Well, Angel Olsen) and features seven, sometimes maximal songs that meet the force of its capitalised track listing with titles like ‘BRUTAL LANGUAGE’, ‘DARK GODS’ and ‘SEA IN ME’. The video for ‘NO TEMPLE’ is directed by Alastair Vanes, where shapeshifting, quicksilver figures morph and contort in a void of harsh beats and explosive synth distortion.**
