Monochromatic and drab coldwave artist Benny Leather has emerged from his tenure in electropunk new wave act Digital Leather to release the new LP Temporary Insanity on FDH records. An apt record title that couldn’t be more appropriate for the times, brought forth from a creative individual who seemingly thrives on the tension of not feeling comfortable in their own skin, or is their skin real? A question often asked in the prescient cyber-punk narratives of the early 80s found in the works of Philip K Dick and William Gibson.

Channeling his inspirations from classic synths acts such as Absolute Body Control, Oppenheimer Analysis, as much as contemporaries Molchat Doma and Black Marble, Benny Leather tunes in from the dead static of a Cathode Ray Monitor into a minimal pulsing that throbs along to the flashes of SMPTE color bars, whose purpose is slowly becoming lost in time as the decades pass, and new personal devices such as smartphones reign.
