TANGIENTS is a post-punk, ambient “gaze-pop” duo based in Los Angeles. Chelsea Ray’s intense, yet dream-like vocals can pierce as well as float over Be Hussey’s thick wall of sonics, resulting in a noisy, aggressive, yet ethereal sound.

“The first single from L.A. duo TANGIENTS was inspired by no less than a near-death experience. “In 2012, I underwent something traumatic that forever changed me … My heart stopped and I was shocked back to life,” singer Chelsea Ray says. “The sparse, yet intense memories I have from this moment gave me a completely different perspective. After ‘coming back,’ I felt that I was only a fragment of the person I was before. Here I am a few years later, writing lyrics about it, and I feel lucky just to be here.”
“White Foam” — both the bleached-out video directed by Sarah Bitely featuring Ray and collaborator Be Hussey, as well as the song itself, a swirl of electronic post-punk haze — complete the powerful introduction to the duo.” –Buzzbands.LA
