Electropop duo TENDER touch on the at times destructive nature of relationships in their latest single “Machine.” Flatmates Dan Cobb and James Cullen found their start in 2015 as a London bedroom pop experiment designed to fight the inorganic structure of big name artists. Two years and hundreds of thousands of streams later, TENDER is counting the days until their debut album release. “Machine” is just one component of the work, all revolving around the lifecycle of temporary love. The track takes on waves of synths, whispered vocals, and a relentless groove, all while lyrically relating codependency to roboticism. If “Machine” has you hooked, be on the look out for TENDER’s debut full-length Modern Addiction, out September 1st via Partisan Records.
