Experimental-Electronic/Vocal, dust.supply (NZ)
Comf is an immersive sonic artist, integrating pulsating and eclectic rhythms with bright synths, buttery vocals, and plenty of noise. With live visuals in tow, Comf commands the stage weaving together a set of songs from the latest series of releases, The Texture Tapes: three EPs creating sonic representations of water, clay, and ceramic textures. Including features from Ilena (Tāmaki Makaurau), Japes, Belphegor, and Kiidotcom (all Pōneke), these three EPs challenge the possibility of synthesis between samples, textures, and heavy layered drums, and are purposeful and directed in their intent.
Comf has been releasing music since 2018, and currently has 2 EPs and a flurry of singles that have been released across this time. They have also featured on Works For Loudspeakers, and have remixes of Aotearoa artists Transistor and Jack Berry. Their newest releases, the Texture Tapes come out between September through to November, totalling in 18 tracks across 3 EPs. The biggest release of their career, this has been close to 2 years in the making, and marks a shift in Comf's balance of organic sounds and twisted vocals.
