Stars & Letters is releasing “Hurt”, the second single by Brooklyn artist We Are Temporary. It’s a despairing anthem filled with scathing lyrics and walls of jagged synths, where distorted drum batteries and broken-limb arpeggios conjure up the nihilism of fading love and the mechanistic brutality of late 80’s darkwave and EBM. Above it all soars an emotional voice, desperately repeating the mantra: “I tried everything I could to make you suffer / To make you hurt / To make you care…”
The song is available for free download from Bandcamp and includes four minutes of audio liner notes recorded by the artist.
