New Music: Shanghai Beach – The Actress

  • New Music: Shanghai Beach - The Actress

Shanghai Beach is the solo project of Brooklynite Steven Salazar, who describes his music as being born from ‘an obsession with synthesizers, drum machines, and poetry about a dystopian future’. His latest track The Actress features vocals from Linda Gardens of Panama Papers.

With a pulsating bass line amplified by icy synth leads, the alternating male and female vocals conjure up a minimalist feast for the ears, echoing The Cure and New Order at their darkest. The Actress will feature on Shanghai Beach’ upcoming album Bizarre Mutation – until then you can check out some of his back catalogue over on Spotify.
