“Like Gary Numan Alien Skin is timeless as opposed to reliving something from the past and throwing some glitter on it.” -Jan LaRue

If you’re unfamiliar with the name Alien Skin it’s OK. Even with a notable history independent artists rarely have resources to remain in front of a broad audience.

Fans of dark electropop follow Alien Skin today because he continues to represent that youthful – anything is possible – 80s era we love.
