"Tindering" by US -based synthpop artist Bad Bubble is a music of many contrasts. The percussion laying low, almost distant, starts off in a military beat style, then waits hesitantly at times before breaking back into the march again. And it's almost a sort of Pandora's Box of sounds in the effervescent, dynamically diverse mix; every musical part that makes up this creation is very noticeably different; not part of the same species it would seem, but able to join hands together just enough to form a resulting combination magnetic in it's ability to keep you guessing and interested in what the artist is trying to say. Once again Bad Bubble is passing on an experience, a message to his audience through his music, in his inventive, boundary pushing unique style. Beginning with the marching percussion and swirls of space and time infused with echoes of a far away Christmas, there's a whisper of an oriental flavour too, weaving a path through this track; maybe that's where the suggestion of a slightly subdued Christmas spirit emanate from. Above all is a clear and strong distinctive vocal, desperately wanting to convey, in it's heartfelt pleading expression, a sense of loss and hurt felt in the past. Not in the general festive tradition, but then not everything at Christmas time is a cause for celebration for everybody. Very much music of many contrasts. The warm, melodious, emotive keyboard riff is the nurturing, dependable force that holds all the diversity together; it's a constant, loyal and trusted golden thread all through this fascinating piece. Just as the artist himself never fails to fascinate with these unpredictable journeys of artistic endeavour.
