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 dark synth-pop 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 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 authentic post-punk synthpop from the antipodes.
So, if you too are a dyed-in-the-wool fan of 80s version 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.
