ShapeShiftingAliens: Showing My Face
ShapeShiftingAliens‘ critically acclaimed one-track-single “Showing My Face” is out! The track is taken from their self-titled album, ShapeShiftingAliens.
Backseat Mafia writes a review of their album, the self-titled ShapeShiftingAliens. Regarding the album, the writer asserts that it’s “the progeny of Nick Cave, Tindersticks, Einstürzende Neubauten, Sisters of Mercy and Nine Inch Nails with its own unique and distinctive style, dressed in black with an arched eyebrow and a sense of theatre.” Concerning “Showing My Face”, he claims that it’s “a brilliant electro-goth romp infused with cool yet not self-absorbed swagger, matched with a stunning video that perfectly captures their theatrical steampunk stomp.”
The Big Takeover – a New York music magazine wrote: “It’s easy to recall David Bowie and Tin Machine upon listening to this, as well as the wonderful compositions between Angelo Badalamenti and Trent Reznor for David Lynch‘s Lost Highway soundtrack, not to mention Brian Eno at his most upbeat and Moby. There’s even a dash of Underworld in their less hallucinogenic moments. This is superb and addictive – one of the better tracks of 2018 thus far.”
Noise Journal wrote, about “Showing My Face”, that it’s “a perfect example of how electronic pop should be: Elegant and musically wide, perfect!”
“Showing My Face” was also track of the day in Stereo Embers Magazine in February.
Midlands Metalheads wrote a very favorable review about their self-titled album, claiming that: “I could have easily highlighted something about every track on the album, it is simply that good.” It continues: “I cannot recommend this album enough, fans of Bowie, Mansun, Goldfrapp, and anyone who appreciates electronic song composition with depth and bombast should certainly pay this album a visit.”
