Hailing from Portland/Oregon, Tanner Volz
began cultivating his talents for creating electronic music in the early 1990s with the post-industrial band Thine Eyes
. From there, the eclectric project ML was realized and went on to release prolific works on many different labels.
While recovering from an illness in 2008, Tanner seeded his new project Anklebiter
on a laptop from the comfort of his easy chair. A deeply personal, idio-syncratic, and emotionally rich instrumental electronic work emerged that fully indulged Tanner's love for contem-porary shoegaze and synthpop styles, as well as his deep roots in early industrial and dark new wave.
'I will wait' manages to embrace a refreshing simplicity with unique effectiveness that is rarely heard these days. Staggering beats meet nostalgic synthlines to create a haunting aural utopia that is at once beautiful and all together strangely alluring.
