Touristen Tempo

With its gently bouncing rhythm, the music of Viennese threesome Touristen Tempo is melancholy without being mawkish, melodic but not mellow. Morrissey and The Cure come to mind, and yet this young band is more than just another post punk or new wave epigone. Nostalgia definitely plays a part here, but then - who´s free of it? Certainly not our most revered musical heroes.

Founded in 2011, Touristen Tempo have their base in Vienna. Their music, however, is as international as it gets.

With their steady ebb and flow of warm, effects-laden sounds, northern California’s Whirr (Formerly Whirl) give the sounds of 90s shoegaze a widescreen update for the post-millennial era. The young sextet’s walls of lush guitars, breathy vocals, dreamy synth and thunderous drumming propel listening ears into a near-cinematic realm where instantly catchy melodies and emotional, enveloping atmospheres hang perfectly in the balance.
