As electro-keyboardist in the Australian band Real Life, who hit the top of the charts with the 1983 synth smash Send Me An Angel, Alien Skin has been at the frontier of electronic pop since its early days.
Fans of darkwave and synthpop follow Alien Skin today because he continues to represent that memorable, analogue 80s era we love.
‘New Romance: 1984’ mastered at Abbey Road Studios, London, and released through the ScentAir Records label, Moscow, is an album of songs written in the early 1980s.
All these songs were once alive and performed in the underground clubs of Melbourne, Australia during that era. If they conjure up feelings of that special time many of us lived through, or wish to have lived through, then they’ve succeeded. It’s an album of post-punk dark synthpop from the antipodes.
So, if you too are a dyed-in-the-wool fan of 80s classic Depeche Mode, OMD, New Order, Fad Gadget, Gary Numan, Suicide and others like them then Alien Skin music is a must for your collection.
Jamsphere magazine wrote, “there’s a sensitivity behind the android cool”. His lyrical imagery, delicate or obscure, speaks of alienation and aloneness. Club beat or retro quirky, the album’s spiky edges fit inside a pocket of turbulent electro-age melancholia.

Europe’s biggest electronic music magazine since 1989, Side-Line, had this to say about the album P.O.P POP… “Alien Skin accomplished a true masterpiece. The minimal sound treatments reflect an intelligent creation composed by an artist in search of new ideas. The songs are elaborate, revealing cool astral sound treatments, icy sequences, but still great synth lines. Somewhere in between retro influences and pure modernism, this album has something visionary and absolutely refreshing.”
