Temple Invisible's Enter_ EP Out March 10th In The US/Canada

posted Feb 22, 2015, 8:52 AM by Vu Nguyen
Temple Invisible is the dark-experimental, electronic, post-industrial musical project of Irina Bucescu, Costas Ivanov and Daniel Olteanu – three multi instrumentalists from Bucharest, Romania.

Temple Invisible‘s music diffuses a unique blend of electronic influences and musical genres combined with a classical sense of composition. Since releasing their debut single ‘Disappearance’ in May 2014 they have had a pretty ripper year. Whether playing multiple venues around the hometown, performing on the main stage at Electric Castle Festival in Transylvania or finding new fans around the world it’s fair to say the guys have been off to a nice start.

In the autumn of 2014 they've released their second single, 'Collide', ahead of an EP release called ‘ENTER_’ on early of 2015. At the same time, they've been getting rave reviews across the internet as well as comparisons to the likes of Depeche Mode and Massive Attack. The darker edge of the first two singles is offset by Irina's vocals that draw you sub-consciously into the songs.

Striking a balance between the trip-hop scenes of Portishead with the dark industrial zones inhabited by Nine Inch Nails, the three-piece summon tectonic plates of noise that shift subtly with earth-shattering consequences.

Press Quotes

Temple Invisible hails from Romania, and makes a brand of dark, icy, electronica that feels like someone took the industrial tremor of Depeche Mode and the trip-hop sprinklings of Portishead, and made them spend the night locked together in a pitch black dungeon.” - Thump

“Creeping, emotive, glitchy” - BULLETT

"Romania may not be the first country to spring to mind when you think of those paving the way in electronic music, but experimental three piece Temple Invisible are out to change that." - Hunger Magazine

“Dark, neo-industrial electronics from Romania - a sentence we don’t get to write often enough - the trio have been attracting with their dense, Nine Inch Nails inspiring writing.” - Clash

“Imagine if Daughter went ‘80s goth or a more psychedelic Portishead and you’ll probably land in the ballpark of Temple Invisible.” - The Line Of Best Fit
