American, North Carolina-based darkwave act Tenderlash releases live recording'Live from a Dark Room'

Tenderlash is the solo electronic project of artist/composer/vocalist Candy Durant, based in Southeastern USA. The project draws from influences in 80s underground, new wave, coldwave, and darkwave. The debut single “Mourning At Midnight,” was originally released in 2013 on the Bedroom Cassette Masters Volume IV compilation. After taking a hiatus to play and tour as vocalist/keyboard player in electronic band Solemn Shapes, Tenderlash was then resurrected in 2020.

The Mourning EP was released on Bandcamp in March 2020, containing the first single, two remixes, and a cover of The Cure’s “If Only Tonight We Could Sleep”. Shortly after the EP’s release, Tenderlash signed with European record label Swiss Dark Nights and released her debut full-length album “Hold Still” in January 2021.

Out in the next weeks now is a limited edition physical release of a live performance originally aired on 22 May 2021 for A Black Celebration WGD Special Edition. It features 6 of the 9 tracks, that were included in Tenderlash’ debut album “Hold Still”, in quite different, exclusive live-versions.

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
