The music created by experimental artist Yves Tumor encompasses haunting ambient collages, ethereal lo-fi soul, and confrontational noise, shifting through styles and sounds in a fluid, surrealist manner. Born and raised in Tennessee, Sean Bowie taught himself to play several musical instruments as a teenager before moving to California during his early twenties. Claiming Throbbing Gristle as a major influence, he became heavily active as part of Los Angeles' experimental music scene.His post-chill wave work as Teams earned praise from the blogosphere, and he collaborated with artists such as Star Slinger, James Ferraro, and Jónó Mí Ló. He met experimental hip-hop artist Mykki Blanco in 2012, and later became affiliated with her Dog Food label. After moving to Europe, Bowie began working on more personal, spiritual material as Yves Tumor.

The year 2015 brought appearances on NON Worldwide Compilation, Vol. 1 and Mykki Blanco Presents C-ORE, as well as Tumor's self-released debut, When Man Fails You. Apothecary Compositions issued the album on cassette in 2016, and Bill Kouligas' Pan label released Serpent Music, Tumor's second, more lyrical full-length. The album was met with critical acclaim, as was Mono No Aware, Pan's 2017 compilation that included Tumor's track "Limerence." Shortly after Tumor released Experiencing the Deposit of Faith online in September of 2017, he announced that he had signed to Warp. Before the end of the year, his remix of Ryuichi Sakamoto's "ZURE" was released. Safe in the Hands of Love, an audacious full-length which embraced everything from '90s alt-rock to noise, was surprise-released in September of 2018. ~

“The newest member of the Warp family continues to subvert all expectations.” – FACT

“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

"Yves Tumor is one of experimental electronic's most adventurous songwriters .... It’s a beautiful new strain of pop darkness only Tumor could conjure up.” - Pitchfork Best New Track July 2018
