Since their widely acclaimed and explosive 2020 album Heaven To A Tortured Mind, subversive alternative rockstar Yves Tumor kept the world at bay with a steady supply of new music in the form of The Asymptical World EP and their last single, “God Is a Circle.” Now, they’ve fully announced their return with “Echolalia” and news of a 2023 world tour supported by Pretty Sick and Nation.

Noted for their androgynous stage presence and between-the-lines exploration of music with disregard to genre classification, Yves Tumor’s latest single is no different. Their upcoming album, Praise a Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds), is due March 17th and will mark the beginning of a 2023 reign over the music world.


“Echolalia” exudes the ethereal and infernal, where Tumor’s velveteen vocals cut through the ferocious drumming appropriate for an army of thousands. The blaring bass comes in like an enemy zeppelin, fuelling the track alongside the drums while the esoteric lyrics read as Apocrypha rather than songwriting. The word echolalia means a repetition of nonsensical words, which could explain Tumor’s otherworldly songwriting that compliments the music’s idiosyncratic style.

The music video is just as wonderfully peculiar, if not more so. Featuring a team of tiny Tumors pinning down a giant Tumor against a nether realm hellscape, the visuals turn Gulliver’s Travels into a gory b-movie that fits right in line with the song’s aesthetic. Expectedly, the tiny Tumors are adorned in eclectic outfits that remind of Yves and their glam rock appeal matched in the music and while on stage.

Few musicians compare to Yves Tumor. Even fewer continue to create forward-thinking music consistently without signs of stopping. And after more than half a decade of releasing one acclaimed album after another, their next release is, without a doubt, one of the most anticipated releases that’s sure to deliver if “Echolalia” is any basis.
