Details:
Irish electro-pop band Empire State Human (current line-up: Aidan Casserly, Lar Kiernan & Seán Barron) formed in 1999 and broke into the US electronic underground scene, following the release of their commercial debut album Pop Robot in February 2002 with Ninthwave Records.

ESH create contemporary song and instrumental based electronic music, with a retro-electro edge. Their music is a combination of analogue and digital synthesized sound, mixed with powerful rhythms and overlaid with strong pop vocal melodies.

In 2001, ESH composed an original piece of music called Chimes for a Sony Play Station 2 advert. A new version of Chimes featured on the bands Alpha & Omega album, which was released in October 2002.

ESH have been remixed and collaborated with: Wave In Head (Germany), Count To Infinity (USA), Freezepop (USA), Tycho Brahe (Australia), One Lazy Ear Studios (Ireland), Giallo (USA), No Comment (Germany), DJ Durden (Mexico), Ganymede (USA), Xero/G (USA), Nexus 8 (Mexico) and Synthetik FM (USA). They have a number of high profile collaborations and remixes already lined up for 2003 and only recently launched their own recording studio called electric eye.

ESH's live US debut concert was in New York City on 5th October 2002, at the prestigious Albion Batcave venue.

The band will be releasing a new single called Liquid Blue in August 2003, which will be followed by a brand new studio album called Urbanism, in September. The new album will include a free live album called Live On Mars with the first pressing only.

I had the opportunity to see Empire State Human https://www.tradebit.com play live at the Temple Bar Music Centre on Saturday March 22nd, where they opened for D Mode https://www.tradebit.com - a Depeche Mode tribute band. It was my first time to see ESH play live and despite not knowing a great deal about the band I was hugely impressed with them. For a city that offers a limited number of opportunities for an electro-pop band to perform live (mainly due to the small number of venues in Dublin that will support an electronic band) they were cool and confident on stage. Lead singer Aidan Casserly in a long white mad professors side-buttoned lab coat and Sci-Fi shades looked in total control of the audience - while synthmeisters Lar Kiernan and Brian O'Malley stood in the glow of two large video screens that churned out Japanese adult manga. A darkened stage punctured by a hypnotic light show and coupled with the clearest, punchiest sound I've heard for a very long time at a gig completed the set-up.

ESH played a 50-minute set that included tracks from some of their CD releases to date, including "Little Alfie" from their last album "Alpha & Omega" and "We Are Industry" - which will appear their new album 'Urbanism' as well as on "Electricity II" from Ninthwave Records, alongside tracks by Heaven 17 and White Town. Two songs were premiered on the night - the recently completed album version of 'Post Madonna', which drew a great response from the crowd, as did a new song called 'Liquid Blue' (which I'm told is likely to be released as a single). The big surprise for me was their astonishing version of the Bowie classic track "Five Years" (it's featured on Bowie's 'Ziggy Stardust' album) - Aidan's vocals really shone through on this track. The crowd reaction throughout the whole set was very enthusiastic and a quick chat from some fellow punters confirmed that they were duly impressed. It's a damn shame that more music venues in Dublin do not support the electronic scene - if the crowd response was anything to go by, then there is a definite desire to see more - and bands like ESH are more than able to fulfil this desire. Speaking with Aidan afterwards he indicated that this latest gig signals the start of a transition period for ESH. This was Brian's last outing with the band as he moves on to new ventures in film and video direction, while it marks the start of the final leg of completion of their new album, 'Urbanism', which sees Seán Barron instilled full time with the band.

EMPIRE STATE HUMAN REVIEW QUOTES


Re-flexion (Germany)
'ESH unites melodious synthpop ... with a beautiful, sometimes fragile singing ... which is hard to take away oneself from.'

Electroage (Canada)
'ESH is truly a unique collision of dreamy pop and otherworldly electronics.

https://www.tradebit.com (USA)
'The band's influence goes from Kraftwerk to English 80's electro pop, passing through an unique process: originality.'

Electronically Yours (UK)
'Apollo is pure brilliance and sends shivers down my back with the finely crafted melody and haunting rifts confirming that there is real talent on this record.'

Seven (UK)
'Superb synth leads & imposing rhythms, alternating with more spacey, FX driven parts.'

21st Century Ballroom Dancing (UK)
'Damn near the perfect pop group these two lucky ear holes have heard all season. Suss enough to play by the rules, but brilliant enough to break them.'

Petaluma Top Ten March 2002 by John Abbott (USA)
'Take equal measures of retro analogue & digital synthesized sound, add contemporary rhythms, and swirl in pop melodies and you've got the format of Empire State Human. ESH draws on their collective work in music, architectural and film industries, which explains their intricate yet appealing song structures.'

Side Line Magazine (Belgium)
'On the 22 track (!!) album you get smashed around the head with future synthpop hits that go in like a warm chocolate milk on a cold winter evening.'

https://www.tradebit.com (Germany)
'While listening to POP ROBOT for the first time, it is the distinctive high voice of the singer that stands out. Besides the catchy melodies, the trademark of ESH, there's really catchy instrumental pieces. This is Synthpop of absolute purity and high quality. Their own style is mixed into a kind of synthpop, which has saved its place in the hall of fame.'

Dark City Zone (Russia)
'Conceptual artists not only exist in Rock/Metal, but also in Electro-pop. Irish band Empire State Human have created this conceptual album ('Pop Robot'), combining different elements of Deep House, Ambient Electronica & Modern Synthpop.'
