Founding fathers of the New Romantics and pioneers of the 80s sound Visage, return with their final single from the highly successful comeback album 'Hearts And Knives'. "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 the singles from this album the CD singles feature a plethora of remixes and alternative versions to deliver over 40 minutes of music. First up on the remix duty are Russian based Irealight 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. 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. MB Disco's head Martin Brodin and Stirfry offer up their futuristic version, an intriguing mix of electro and disco for a club oriented tune.
The package also contains the return on the remix duty of another 80's disco and electro's legend: Studio 54 Man Parrish. We let the music talk for this one..
"Hearts and Knives" may have been a long time in coming but it is a purposeful statement of just where Steve Strange and Visage are at present. The past has been full of highs and lows but musically & creatively they are at a point where they can confidently present an album containing all the strands of their unique mix of music, fashion and style.
