Beyond Science And Superstition sees Mechanical Cabaret mainman Roi Robertson now officially recording together with Steve Bellamy [Greenhaus/Kamakusa] as a fulltime band member.
Together they’ve developed the no-nonsense synthpunk of earlier releases, pushing the boundaries of the Mechanical Cabaret sound into previously uncharted territories.
The title of the album reflects songwriter Roi’s lyrical exploration of the realities of life, how things really are, with often painfully acute insight.
The fiercely intense, sometimes dark, wayward elements are still present, as is the perversity and black humour but all positively glowing with a newfound warmth and humanity.
With their collection of vintage analogue synths, samplers, and an esoteric array of other instruments, they’ve produced a unique album of experimental, retrofuturistic, witty electropop.
