NYC duo Tempers takes us on a slick stroll through chest-swelling soundscape in their latest single “Nightwalking.” Featuring the celestial vocals of Jasmine Golestaneh, the track buoys as the aerated synths and rhythmic flows by Eddie Cooper take you on a goosebumps-inducing journey. Lyrically, the track explores finding unexpected beauty within chaos – which we’ve all experienced during the ongoing pandemic as we start rediscovering the small pleasures of life.

“I took a lot of long walks at a time when people had abruptly vacated NYC, and left the remnants of their homes on the sidewalks,” tells Golestaneh. “The city’s landscape became very surreal – a ghost town turned inside out. I was thinking about how to stay open, and embrace life derailed. The sky over the city was a real source of mystery, in its own world of pink sunsets, and sparkling nights. The contrast of that oblivious beauty amidst the pandemic chaos felt very special, and inspired the song.”

The track is from their upcoming album New Meaning, which will be out on April 1st. They’ll go on tour in March.
