Over Fire

In a desolate world haunted by the specter of loss, Tamara Qaddoumi beckons to the fragments of those that remain and treads the delicate line between grief and abandon.

A rhythmic trance of industrial beats drives a sludgy, slightly dissonant drone of synths, punctuated by hypnotic torrents of Qaddoumi’s melancholic vocals and harmonies.

COLD IN THE MOURNING

With “Cold in the Mourning”, Tamara Qaddoumi takes the listener on an exploration of the many faces of loss, lost innocence and the artist’s encounters with the ever-elusive, shape-shifting nature of bereavement. Driven by Qaddoumi’s spectral vocal delivery and sprawling, synth-drenched melodies, the track weaves the threads of its poignant narrative into a powerful, vivid reminder of our daily struggles with grief and the experience of living with and, ultimately, being transformed by it.

Under the Knife

“Under the Knife,” the debut single off Tamara Qaddoumi’s forthcoming EP, Sorry, Signal, explores the universal experience of   mortality. Its ethereal vocals, resonating bass, subdued guitars, and slow-train drums create an atmosphere akin to discovering how to breathe underwater. Rather than evading the sensation of drowning, embracing the inevitable with a grace allows life to shimmer with enchantment.

The track seeks to transcend fear of the unknown, yet a current of melancholy remains in the undertow. As the track reaches crescendo, surrender to the profound spectrum of emotion becomes a triumph in itself. What lies ahead is not bound by time—it’s a journey faster than time itself, an exploration of the boundless mysteries beyond.

Sorry Signal

Tamara’s upcoming EP Sorry Signal can be seen as a rumination on death. The four track album gives a sleek cold-pop sound rife with emotional articulations, highlighting the complex  dynamic between man and machine. Inspired by hospital environments, cold and sterile atmospheres are animated with suggestive guitars, emphatic synths, and heady lyrics. The album processes death and grief through its electronics, synthesizing silver linings and graceful insights to arrive at a certain peace. 

SOFT GLITCH

Created primarily during lockdown with an intimate set of musicians, the EP’s expressive drums drive the harmonic vocal layering, galactic synths, and idiosyncratic guitar riffs, embracing the glitching dynamics inherent in electronics.

Traveling through complex melodic arrangements, weaving coils of desire and observation, the trip-hop EP Soft Glitch explores the flawed circuits of emotion and creation.
