Yves Tumor shows the world that it's Safe in the Hands of Love with his debut album for Warp.
Released with no fanfare or prior warning, following astonishing singles Noid, Licking an Orchid and Lifetime. Whereas each of these showed a different side to his sound, Yves Tumor's seeming refusal to be creatively pigeonholed is the most vital and compelling cog within his musical identity. Walking a tightrope between being on the one hand, one of the most seductive, soulful musicians of modern times, while also being a serious aficionado of harsh n0!se.
Safe in the Hands of Love captures each and every side of Yves Tumor's musicianship with an elegant mix of pop numbers and more experimental de-constructions. The recordings are uncharacterizable as anything other than Yves Tumor music. Repeatedly carving out a new path within the musical trajectory of Dean Blunt, Coil, Klein, Radiohead and Kevin Shields – Yves Tumor's Safe in the Hands of Love builds upon his recordings for PAN while setting the stage and informing anyone still unsure that Yves Tumor is truly one of the most visionary and singular artists of his generation.
