Temposhark are an English electronic rock band, formed in London and Brighton by singer-songwriter Robert Diament and one-time music producer Luke Busby. Temposhark were best known for their songs Bye Bye Baby, Joy, It's Better To Have Loved and Not That Big; a duet with singer Imogen Heap which appeared on their 2008 debut album The Invisible Line. Their second album Threads was released in 2010 and reached the top 15 on iTunes UK electronic albums chart. Other notable artist collaborations include Guy Sigsworth, Sean McGhee, Youth from Killing Joke, Kate Havnevik, Melnyk, Camille, MaJiKer, Morgan Page, Avril and the virtuoso violinist Sophie Solomon. Temposhark's music has been featured in numerous television programmes, including the USA advertising campaign for British TV series Downton Abbey in 2011.[1]

Early EPs and Collaborations (2004–2007)[edit]

The initial idea for Temposhark started in London whilst Diament was recording and writing with producer Youth from Killing Joke. At this time, Diament also began staying in Brighton where his old school friend Luke Busby was studying visual art and music at the time. Diament has spoken about that era of initial experimentation,

Diament set up his own UK record label in December 2004 called Paper and Glue releasing a series of limited edition Temposhark singles, the first of which was their EP Neon Question Mark.

Temposhark quickly collaborated with singer Imogen Heap (Frou Frou), received club remixes from electro pioneers including Cursor Miner, Mark Moore (S'Express), Melnyk, Metronomy, Avril (FCommunications), Carmen Rizzo and Crispin J Glover as well as hip-hop crew Border Crossing, Masashi Naka (Escalator Records, Japan), Akira the Don and electropunk duo Noblesse Oblige. The band have also written two short film soundtracks for fine artist Justine Pearsall. Diament and Pearsall went on to collaborate on an art music video for the Temposhark song It's Better To Have Loved in 2005. This art video was first screened in public at the De La Warr Pavilion in February 2006 when Temposhark performed live at the respected British arts venue.[3]

A second EP 'Invisible Ink/Little White Lie' came out in May 2005 which attracted many new admirers including producer Guy Sigsworth, best known for his work with Madonna, Björk and Britney Spears. Sigsworth went on to produce Temposhark's first nationwide released UK single It's Better To Have Loved, which came out as a limited edition CD on 12 December 2005. All of these early Temposhark limited edition EPs came in deluxe packaging helping to create a buzz around the band in creative circles and with their fanbase. The band themselves were never pictured on the sleeves instead choosing striking original art images and stylish die-cut record sleeves. Around this time, Temposhark's live shows included bass player Jasmin O'Meara who also plays bass for Zoot Woman.[4]

In 2005, Diament said that his band name was thought up when he "woke up in the midst of a dream one night, at like 4am, and just said the word Temposhark. So it came from my subconscious I guess. Honestly it was that simple. I wanted a name that sounded strong. I liked the idea that music could be a weapon. Something powerful."[5]

In May 2006 Temposhark released their second nationwide single Joy on limited edition CD and 7" vinyl and the band set out on a UK tour visiting towns all over the UK. These dates included a very high profile London show at Tate Britain on Fri 5 May and Carling Academy Islington on Sat 20 May. Temposhark gained many new fans when Joy was featured on the front homepage of iTunes UK and in iTunes’ weekly newsletter.

In 2007, Temposhark toured the USA with their full band as well as completing their debut album, to be released in March 2008 in USA and Europe.

In 2008, their collaboration with rapper Akira The Don was released in US magazine XLR8R called Bang.

The Invisible Line (2008 debut album)[edit]

Main article: The Invisible Line

Temposhark's debut album The Invisible Line was released in Spring 2008 in both UK and USA/Canada.[6] It was produced and recorded in London by rising producer Sean McGhee with two tracks produced by Guy Sigsworth. The album includes the song Blame, which was co-written with producer Youth aka Martin Glover from Killing Joke as well as a duet with Imogen Heap called Not That Big.

On 15 March 2007 at the South by Southwest 2007 festival, Temposhark announced on stage that their debut album was to be called The Invisible Line. Singer Robert Diament has said that the album title was inspired by controversial British artist Tracey Emin from passages in her books Exploration Of The Soul (1994) and Strangeland (2005).[7]

A behind-the-scenes video of Temposhark recording at London's RAK Studios was released on YouTube.com on 26 May 2007. The video was synced up to the full album version of the Temposhark song Blame.[8] This is thought to be the first preview of the newly recorded album version of the song.

In October 2007, Temposhark's song Blame was nominated in the Best International category at the Ontario Independent Music Awards which take place in Toronto, Canada on 15 November 2007.[9] Due to the album being leaked ahead of its official Spring 2008 release, its now been made available on iTunes in Europe, Australia and Japan.

In February 2008, Temposhark and their song Blame was announced as a finalist in the Pop/Top 40 category of the International Songwriting Competition (ISC).[10] Blame was chosen by a board of respected judges included Nelly Furtado, Macy Gray, DJ Tiesto, Robert Smith of The Cure and Julian Casablancas of The Strokes.[11] In April 2008, the song went on to become a winning finalist in the Pop/Top 40 category.[12]

In the same month, The Invisible Line was highlighted in The Guardian as a new band to watch article, described as "What if Kate Bush had shagged Marc Almond and spawned a monster that grew up listening to Violator? That's Temposhark, musically at any rate."[13]

In March 2008, the NME praised Temposhark's debut album with a positive review, "What if Trent Reznor was raised on the Pet Shop Boys rather than Einsturzende Neubauten? Think these dudes... they could be your new favourite band. 7 out of 10"[14]

Temposhark filmed four songs live for Fox TV's music show Fearless Music in the USA during April 2008.[15]

Temposhark's animated music video to their single Blame was selected for the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2008. Directed by New York based artist Motomichi Nakamura, the video will be screened on 22 June as part of the Mirrorball event focused on music video and music documentaries.[16]

On 27 June 2008, SXSW Click digital festival announced Temposhark's music video Blame in the top 3 finalists for the best music video of 2008.[17] At the end of July 2008, Temposhark were announced the winner of the Music Video category, and will therefore have their video screened at the 2009 SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas.[18]

Temposhark's music video to Blame was then shortlisted for the Portugal International Music Video Festival ViMUS 2008 and was screened in Póvoa de Varzim, Portugal between 4–7 September 2008.[19]

The Blame video went on to be nominated for a Hollywood Music Award (ceremony in November 2008) whilst also being selected for screening at the San Francisco International Animation Festival (run by the San Francisco Film Society) and at the Holland Animation Film Festival 2008.[20]

On 7 September 2008, Temposhark's song Knock Me Out was played on the MTV Video Music Awards 2008.[20]

In November 2008, Temposhark's video Blame won the New Music Video Awards 2008.[21]

Threads (2010 second album)[edit]

In 2009, two new digital singles The World Does Not Revolve Around You and Bye Bye Baby were released, each accompanied by a music video. Also in Summer 2009, Diament wrote songs with producer Guy Sigsworth[22] and popstar Diana Vickers.[23]

In April 2010, Temposhark released their second album Threads. The album has 11 brand new songs. Released on 5 April 2010 as a digital download and reached number 15 in the iTunes Top 20 electronic albums in the UK.[24] The digital version of the album includes 2 bonus remixes of the title track by Morgan Page and MaJiKer and PDF downloadable artwork. The album reached the USA Top 20 in CMJ's college radio albums chart in March 2010.[25]

In March 2010, Temposhark's song Bye Bye Baby was nominated for an Exposure Music Award in the UK.[26] In May 2010, the song also received regular radio play in Germany when released as a single there.[27]

In May 2010 for an interview with UK magazine The Kaje, Diament described Threads as a "break-up album in many ways. A lot of the songs are about the end of a relationship and the start of a new life."[25] Diament said the album was originally going to be called Fireworks but after writing the song Threads he decided that title summed up the album's overall mood and continued his earlier concept from his debut The Invisible Line of "how music can really connect people. But also of how everyone is interconnected in the world".[25]

Recordings for television[edit]

Songs from Temposhark's two albums including The World Does Not Revolve Around You, Bye Bye Baby, Frames, Green Lights, Not That Big, Knock Me Out, Blame and Irresistible were featured in USA television programmes such as Keeping Up with the Kardashians,[28] Paris Hilton's My New BFF,[29] People's Choice Awards (CBS),[30] The Bad Girls Club, Road Rules, Love Games[31] and numerous MTV shows including The Real World,[32] 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, and Styl'D.[33]
