Sometimes you can guess what a band sounds like based on their name alone. Denver's Alien Gothic sound exactly like their name. Their newest single, "Shine the Lights," is a deep goth electronica track that plows over you with a wall of noise. It's oddly beautiful, but in a brutal, otherworldly way. It's filled with electronic fuzz that lulls you into a sense of comfort before kicking in and melting your senses. It's eerie and repelling, but also compelling and will draw you in.
Ryan Policky says of the duo's new single:
"It's a symphony of alien sounds and favorite mellotron moments. It soars like a massive whale, while being pulled down into tight rhythms and mechanical goth patterns. A complete experiment that formed a lot of our overall sound... cosmic goth as we like to call it."
