Ian Carey and Shanti Ellis are Aubergine MACHINE. Formed in late 2012, the duo creates genre-melting electronic music with pop/mainstream appeal. With U People, the band infused a commercial synthpop/trip-hop sound with an air of experimental mystery and magic. They’ve release a deceptively simple looking video to accompany the track.
Lead by simmering synths and Shanti Ellis’ rich and emotive vocals, the band describe U People as ’a dystopian synth-pop anthem, transporting listeners to a remote wooded landscape where anything seems possible’. You can stream the track of more of the band’s material over at Spotify.
