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 etheral, 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.
Past attentive reviewers have compared Mach FoX to The Chameleons, The Cure, David Bowie, Gary Numan, Killing Joke, The Cruxshadows Bauhaus, Alien Sex Fiend, The Cult, Depeche Mode, Sisters of Mercy, New Order, Interpol, Wall of Voodoo, Blondie, Yaz, DAF and even Prince, and while many of these bands are referenced and glimpses of them can be felt and heard, he 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 fierce electropunk attitude.
The Sky Is Falling EP combines recent tracks previously released as digital singles and special versions with 2 unreleased tracks...Full details in Release Notes.
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.
