Album Notes
Sex Industry’s debut EP runs the gamut from industrial electro, through ‘80s synthpop to atmospheric trip-hop, drawing influences from acts as diverse as Depeche Mode, Nitzer Ebb, Garbage, Sneaker Pimps, Radiohead, and David Bowie (to name but a few) while maintaining a unique and cohesive thrust and narrative build in its five songs.
The San Francisco-based glam/electro/rock band, comprised of Virginia Suicide (vocals), Maria Konner (guitar, synths, piano), and Davey Jay (bass, synths, programming), imbues these tunes with an arc of energy starting with “Mannequin”; an indictment of the fashion industry and its fetishistic enslavement scenarios, underlined by multi-layered synths, gated guitar textures, and dance beats. “Ramona” straps you into a post-apocalyptic joy-ride through dead cities and industrial wastelands spiked with bittersweet reminiscence of lost love and shattered faith, while “4LTRWRDS” delivers a feverish expression of sexuality through skin-tight phrasing, sharpening their edge with machine-gun guitars and heightened vocal attack. “Outside World” sweetens the mix, offering a take on the isolation of the digital age to the sound of catchy pop music. Pausing briefly to set the mood with a wistful piano interlude, the EP concludes with “Wrong Man”; a bluesy piano-laced cocktail of trip-hop beats and smoky guitar riffs lamenting the futility of no-win relationships.
Tracing a common thread through these eclectic arrangements is an obsession with aliens, machines, enlightenment, futurism, ghosts, the '80s, and of course sex. Sex Industry loves sex, and especially sexuality. Don’t you?
You can catch Sex Industry playing out live in San Francisco and soon beyond.

I Love Sex Industry !
This CD is awesome for someone who liked 80's music and wants to hear new material....Can't wait to see Sex Industry Live. (And they are way better than my favorite group of 1986, the Boss Officers !)


Lots of fun and energy, with a gorgeous bonus at the end!
Great rock tunes you can dance to. Takes you on a journey from hard energy to pop to a gorgeous, unique bittersweet song at the end!


This Band Is Awesome !
I am going to see them live tonight at The Independent in San Francisco. Maria Konner rocks on the guitar!
