Temper Temper’s original epic sound fuses muscular jazz and glittering blues with a richly textured visual landscape, led by Wendy Bevan’s hauntingly beautiful voice. Her otherworldly performance as a statuesque, ghostly femme fatale echoes the Pain of Desire.Pursuing a multidisciplinary approach, Bevan and her band create a world of ambiguity that sends a shiver to the core. Harking back to the golden age of silent film, Temper Temper’s soundscape explores this emotion, with companion visuals created by Bevan, vacillating from serenity to calm, brutal to beautiful, reflecting the cutting dark side of human desire.
