Colorado-based artist Alien Gothic presents the single ‘Shine The Lights’, following up their debut offering ‘In The Night’.  Both songs preview their ‘High and Dry’ album, which will be released via Latenight Weeknight Records on August 18.

Conjuring up music that can be described as gloom from other worlds, the duo – made up of Ryan Policky of A Shoreline Dream and Andy Uhrmacher of Genessier – has been trying to find their way back to the original trajectory they were on previous to crash landing. Stretching cosmic goth music into a whole new realm, the Denver-based duo combines all the elements they have been striving to integrate into the project over the four years since they decided to launch this project.

“Shine the Lights is one of the first that truly formed based on all the layers we tossed at it. We pulled out all the tech, and organic instruments to mix this one up into a whirlwind of cosmic tones,” says Ryan Policky.

“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.”

Alien Gothic creates deep gothic electronica, fused with spatial goth autoharp symphonies, deep mellotron overtures mixed with noises from unknown origins on the vast hour-long debut. Themes and words recall events that the duo have had from the far reaches of the beyond. With deep beats, lush goth rock entwines with psych and shoegaze layers to create cosmic, pulsating melodies.

Recorded from 2020-2023, Alien Gothic takes a journey out of a world gone mad, to spread a sound that is immersive and rich with varied instrumentation. Soundscaping goth is what these artists have become known for elsewhere along the milky way, their spectrums now hitting earth to bring forth a dreary alien orchestra, lost deep in a dark forest beyond the normal stretches of human imagination.

“It’s something we knew would destroy the seedy, cobweb filled dance clubs of the past, bringing forth a new era of goth… alien goth!” says Ryan Policky.

‘Shine The Light’ is available exclusively via Bandcamp. On August 18, the full ‘High and Dry’ album will be released digitally across all fine music platforms.
