Temposhark Joy Single

Temposhark is the work of vocalist Rob Diament and Luke Busby, and the more recent addition of bassist Laurence Warder, who has is also a successful London promoter and DJ. They've spent the early part of 2006 circulating their music, and it has led to collaborations with Killing Joke's Youth, and Madonna/Bjork cohort Guy Sigsworth.

With a similar swagger to Goldfrapp, "Joy" is a sweeping tide of electro-pop that is simply irresistible. Busby puts together an undeniable musical backdrop on which Diament confidently expresses himself, and the result is a track of beauty. "Paris" doesn't quite hit the spot as sweetly, but Temposhark do capture the mood of fashion catwalks, which is aided by a vocal delivery that it's impossible not to deem camp.
