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 (GUIDES, Radar Bros.) thick wall of sonics, resulting in a noisy, aggressive, yet ethereal sound.

The debut single "White Foam" is available on iTunes, Bandcamp, Spotify, and all streaming services. The debut EP will be released in Fall 2018 and the band is currently touring regionally.

CHELSEA RAY - vocals, synth, guitar
BE HUSSEY - bass, synth, guitar




“Where post punk, shoegaze and the dreamier side of elegant pop music meet” -Destroy // Exist

“Sporadic whips of lead guitar harass the track to within an inch of its life and those menacing lines of synth lift the chorus parts brilliantly. As debut singles go, this is impressive stuff and it’ll be very interesting to hear what comes next from this band. Recommended!” -Primal Music

"Ethereal bliss at its finest, a vocal quiver to match the dissonant guitar chords, wavering off key that fits with the gothic rock greats." -Magnetic Magazine

““intense vocals – think a less strident Jehnny Beth of Savages – with Hussey’s sonic layers of synth and effects for a quite masterly first track.”” -Little Indie Blog

“What a debut...Her mystifying voice has that haunting Björk timbre which reinforces the supernatural tone of this profound song. Pretty special and compelling....” -Turn Up The Volume
