Words on “Noid”:
“Yves Tumor’s ability to flip between two opposing Jekyll-and-Hyde personas is one of the most intriguing parts of his artistry; his live shows are brutally dark and visceral assaults while his recorded music trends towards wistful, gentle introspection.” - FACT Singles Club July 2018
“A beautiful new strain of pop darkness only Tumor could conjure up.” – Pitchfork Best New Track July 2018
