Tenderlash is the solo electronic project of artist/composer/vocalist Candy Durant, based in North Carolina. The project draws from influences in 80s underground, new wave, coldwave, and darkwave. It was officially launched in 2013 with the single Mourning At Midnight, but the project was set aside while Durant played and toured with other bands. In 2020, the project was resurrected and the Mourning EP was released in March. This led to the project being signed to the European label Swiss Dark Nights for the release of the debut album Hold Still in January 2021. A live album Live From A Dark Room followed in June 2021. Hold Still was well received and caught the attention of fans from around the world. It continues to be requested and played in clubs, podcasts, online radio, and livestreams, and made several “Best of 2021” lists. Tenderlash has shared stages with artists such as Astari Nite, Bootblacks, IIOIOIOII, Riki, Astrea Corp, Dead Cool, and Nite, to name a few, and has performed livestreams with NNHMN, Hapax, Suzi Sabotage, and others. Tenderlash is currently working on new music and planning more live performances and collaborations.
