Alien Gothic is the duo Ryan Policky (A Shoreline Dream) and Andy Uhrmacher (Genessier). The core of the band is cemented in classic goth rock though the new single also holds darkwave elements. “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.

The song tells the tale of two unknown lifeforms, bringing their favorite sounds to a place they have never explored before. “The music is inspired by the beauty of the world around them, while still being pulled into the darkness of the dead stars they came from”, so the band adds. The accompanying video tells the tale of their recent exploration as they look for a way out of this world, gravitating to the most iconic structures they find along the way. The video was made mixing in elements of AI, traditional film and lost portraits of the two core members.

The “High and Dry” album was recorded from between 2020 and 2023 and will be out on August 18. It is already available for pre-order right below.
