Lead by simmering synths and Shanti Ellis’s crisp, but mystical, vocals, “U People” is a dystopian synth-pop anthem, transporting listeners to a remote wooded landscape where anything seems possible.
Aubergine MACHINE is made up of multi-platinum selling producer Ian Carey and newcomer Shanti Ellis. The duo connected in 2012, but have since relocated their studio to the middle of an obscure tropical landscape in Florida. Throwing all cultural conventions to the wayside, Ian pulls from his ‘90s hip hop obsessions and pop sensibilities to perfectly complement Shanti’s smoldering vocals.
“U People” closely follows the release of their completely addicting singles “Trains” and “Only.” There’s no release date set, but Aubergine MACHINE’s WildLife EP will be available this summer.
