Lyrics lash like barbed sabres on this fiercely melancholy outing from the lauded poet.

Sure, we’ve been smitten with Tempest in the past. Course we have. We’re only human, after all. But this iteration is the most perfectly woven & adroitly matched conversation between their lyricism & instrumentation. It’s best encapsulated on ‘Salt Coast’ with its seamless blend of glistening synth pads, weighty lyrics, & stomping beats perfectly entwining with the forlorn heft of Kae’s art, perfectly distilling their message, & perfectly proving that the pen is still mightier than the sword & that the curving line is their literary blade swooshing down to pierce our hearts & our minds.
