Tenderlash is the solo electronic project of artist/composer/vocalist Candy Durant, based in the USA. The project draws from influences in 80s underground, new wave, coldwave, and darkwave. The debut single “Mourning At Midnight,” originally released in 2013 on the Bedroom Cassette Masters Volume IV compilation. Tenderlash had the opportunity to perform at Electromusic AVL, as well as opening for Astari Nite, IIOIOIOII, and Astrea Corp. After taking a hiatus to play and tour with another band, Tenderlash was resurrected in 2020. The Mourning EP was released on Bandcamp in March 2020, containing the first single, two remixes, and a cover of The Cure’s “If Only Tonight We Could Sleep.” Shortly after the EP’s release, Tenderlash signed with European record label Swiss Dark Nights and released her debut full-length album Hold Still in January 2021. With songs such as “Inferno,” “Cold Outside,” and “Open Your Eyes,” the album has been well received and has continued to get airplay worldwide. Durant is also known for spearheading the “For The Bats” fundraiser compilations to raise money for bat rescue and rehabilitation. Tenderlash’s future plans include performing live shows and festivals, collaborating with other artists, and writing a follow-up album. Durant also has a keen interest in scoring for television and film.
