Yves Tumor is the alias of Sean Bowie, a restless sonic provocateur and musical chameleon whose dynamic recorded output traverses haunting ambient collages, ethereal lo-fi soul and confrontational noise. His latest effort, ‘Safe In The Hands Of Love’, was released without warning by Warp in September and is widely praised as the ‘‘benchmark for experimental music”. Ushering his audience into a beautiful, primal world of distorted pop, the album embraces everything from 90s alt-rock to noise. Live, Yves Tumor’s persona defies expectation. Typically found harnessing a maelstrom of violent catharsis, his appearance at Rewire 2019 sees the enigmatic artist transform his critically-acclaimed album into a stunning, live spectacle.
