Mach FoX - The Sky Is Falling
Like a DeLorean time machine, Mach FoX's sleek, sci-fi, horror, doom-pop exists simultaneously in the electropunk future and the retro-gothrock past. Twitchy computer beats, jittery synthesizers and ethereal, Cure-inspired guitars interweave in Mach FoX's hall of mirrors, with Mach's soaring, mournful vocals serving as a guide through the labyrinth.
While plenty of current bands cop the flash and glitter of 80's electronic tinged gothrock, Mach FoX is one of the few to capture a bit of its soul. And so it's no surprise the band has often been compared to such bands like The Chameleons, David Bowie, Killing Joke, or even DAF. And while many of these bands are referenced and glimpses of them can be felt and heard, Mach FoX has always tried to stay individual and original by mixing electronics with raw guitars and producing his music with a do-it-yourself approach and a fierce electropunk-attitude.
The Sky Is Falling EP combines recent tracks previously released as digital singles and special versions with 2 unreleased tracks. The artwork and EP title were provided by Santa Monica CA. multi media artist Chris Haugen whose work "encompasses the Human Vessel and Society, Inner Struggles and the Apocalypse". Mach FoX could not have found a better match for his songs of betrayal and deception, evil doctors, dragons and grim reapers, future empires, serial killers, and tongues.
