**PRESS RELEASE JULY 29th**
Empire State Human a please to announce the release of a brand new studio album called
"Soul of the Machine".
Following on from their 2012 album "The Art", this brand new album showcases the heart and soul of music made from machines by human hands, resulting in what the band call, their most personal album to date. Mixing Synthwave, Minimal Wave and electro-pop, it's a subtle blend of genres, which blends well with the distinctive voice and songwriting of Aidan Casserly.
To quote Aidan - "After we released 2012's "The Art", we got excited about what new doors of electronic pop could open. Having put 2 years of work (between other projects and releases) we felt there was more ground for improvement and development too.
So, we went straight into writing/co-writing and producing the new Massive Ego album (the first single "Sound of the Download" lands August 2013) and it's been literally non-stop electronic pop since for us. Remixes for Australian's synth giants Parralox and up and coming Irish guitar pop band 5 Dollar Shakes have shown us we can be diverse and productive at once.
Our new album "Soul of the Machine", is coming from another synth angle to the pop of "The Art".
Longer and at times darker but full of machine heart and 'soul'.
