After what can only be described as a phenomenal year promoting and performing their highly successful comeback album 'Hearts And Knives', Visage round off with a fifth and final single. "She's Electric (Coming Around)" was always the track with the most identifiable "Fade To Grey Sound" on the album. From the CR78 drum beats, Polymoogs and minor key pads right down to the sounds of forlorn longing and hopeless romance.
As is the case with all the singles from this album the CD singles feature a plethora of remixes and alternative versions and deliver over 40 minutes of music.
First up we have the bands own "Coming On Strong" remake version. This is about as pop as Visage are ever going to go. Catchy chorus adaptations and uplifting synths. Next up is a futurist mix of electro, disco and progressive. Here Swedish based Martin Brodin and partner Stirfry adding layers of drama. We then take things back to the 80's with an "old school" extended remix. Just liked they used to do. Extended and remixed.
The package also includes a very special guest appearance. 80s London meets 80s New York City with electro legend Man Parrish remixing proceedings as only he can. Its big, its brash, its electro. Next UK based cool cat producer Marcel Lune is next up with a lazy funk alternative spin on the original. Spikey beats, quirky percussion and shifty synths are in full supply. Russia - based Irealight then takes Visage to a destination it has never been before; peak-time, big room trance. The original vocals are sparse but the beats are big. To round things off there is an assortment of instrumentals and fine breaks guzzler from Canadian Dark Arps.
Visage are currently planning and writing their fifth album. So see you all in a year or two.
