Alien Skin is veteran REAL LIFE synthist George Pappas. From the million seller SEND ME AN ANGEL in the 80s to cinematic atmosphere today. Sharing the musical sensibilities of Martin Gore, David Sylvian & all things sensuously dark, mysterious & emotive. In 2008, after a number of acclaimed albums and world tours with Real Life, covering the US, Europe and Australia, he morphed into Alien Skin, releasing his much anticipated debut album, DON'T OPEN TILL DOOMSDAY.
Compared to 'Black Celebration' era Depeche Mode and vocally to Martin Gore (DM) & David Sylvian (Japan), this body of work further established his signature sound of vast emptiness and icy, electronic melancholia.
The release in 2010 of 'The Unquiet Grave' album found the music of Alien Skin continuing to attract thousands of new devotees across the world with atmospheric songs of seductive gothic ambiance, woven together into mesmerizing webs. The album became an instant fan favourite. With the issue in 2012 of 'Ghost In The Rain' the eerie, mysterious cinema of these first two albums was further refined carving out a unique niche.
'The Secret Garden' album in 2013 continued the fixation with songs of beautiful unhurried melodies, atmosphere and Alien Skin's own sense of murky, fluid electronic effervescence. 2014 sees, arguably, the best yet Alien Skin release Creature with the Human Face, a music cinema full of science fiction fantasy, melancholic drama and ultra memorable tunes wrapped in foggy, electronic atmosphere.
