New album: Artificial

What happens beyond artificial intelligence, when the computers get emotional? Artificial is an album where robots sing songs of love and despair. The music is inspired by classic synth artists and combines the DIY ethos of punk with today's technology, sampling and electronic toys. Several of the songs were written on a guitar, but are performed here electronically with computer-generated vocals.

Use the embedded player below to hear the album now. It includes a number of different styles: try Out of Mind for an acoustic ballad sung by computer, or Waiting for Goto for an immersive ambient soundscape. Broken Shell is pop, and Too Much Information is dance. For best results, start at the start.

If you're interested in reviewing it on your blog or in your publication, please contact me if you need any images or MP3s. Thanks in advance for any tweets or posts that help to spread the word! It makes a huge difference.

Artificial is available to buy and stream at Bandcamp. Downloads include a 16-page booklet with selected lyrics, and unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app. The album is also now available at all the usual outlets, including Spotify, Tidal, Amazon and iTunes.
