THAT 80s album made in 2020
“But it doesn’t sound contemporary!” says Johan
No it doesn’t. It’s not meant to!
It’s new wave post punk synth pop
It’s unashamedly 80s Depeche Modish evoking British synthpop of the day
It’s of a vintage analogue era of dark, minor key, catchy hooks & melodies
Many of songs were written and performed to Australian club audiences in that era
“I don’t get it, it sounds like a lost album from the 80s” repeats Johan
Kinda… it’ll therefore appeal to a smaller tribe of lovers
Enthusiastic lovers of what brought new life to us in the 80s
These are the people I produce music for
I think THEY will get it!
Jamsphere Magazine says: “As an artist, Alien Skin is a serious performer, and this is a serious album. There is something incredibly raw and authentic about “NEW ROMANCE: 1984″. Outside of the legendary Depeche Mode and Gary Numan, who are still around doing their thing, it’s a distinctive sound that not many can pull off today.”

Jamsphere magazine “New Romance: 1984” – a distinctive sound that not many can pull off today”
SleepingBag Studios magazine “…there is so much added into even the most subtle of Alien Skin’s songs that the all-around efforts being made on New Romance: 1984 are pretty much nothing less than award-worthy.”
BodyStyler magazine “contemporary retro aesthetics, reminiscent of the early days of Depeche Mode with an exciting twist in a mischievous Sparks manner.”
Atomium magazine “After an incredible album “P.O.P. POP”, Alien Skin returns with a more intimate album with old school sounds of synthpop”
Side-Line magazine “It doesn’t take that long to notice the true 80s spirit supporting this album. This is pure old-school Electro-Pop featuring magic melody lines emerging from the analogue machines”
