With the release of IAMX's The Alternative on May 6th, Metropolis is pleased to announce the domestic release of their debut album, Kiss + Swallow, on June 17th. Melding elements from early electronic with trip hop and the sensibilities of Synthpop, IAMX has created an unmistakable, original sound. The North American version of Kiss + Swallow features two bonus tracks and a video not found on the European release. Like an 80s electro glam soundtrack to a Jan Svankmajer film or an almost unfathomable hybrid between the sexy swagger of Prince and the cool and collected respectability of Roxy Music, IAMX mixes the erotically-charged vocals of Chris Corner (of trip hop godfathers Sneaker Pimps) with music that is, at once, frantic yet controlled. 'A blitzkrieg of psycho-trash glamour, Berlin's IAMX are, with their outlandish fashion sense, a sort of Scissor Sisters of underground electro. With all the swagger of T. Rex, the drama of Marc Almond and the forbidding atmosphere of a bombed out city, this is sex music for a decidedly dystopian future.' - CLEAR Magazine 'Just in case you're wondering what the hell IAMX sounds like... it's pulverizing hypnotic beats that would turn an altar boy into a porn star in seconds.' - Harder Beat Magazine 'Stadium sized rock and seedy Berlin underground at the same time...' - Londonist, UK 'Lest ye think it's all Caligula-with-a-synthesizer and the record is gonna leave fluids and used needles on your record player, don't worry, sweetness - the ratio of Saturday night to Sunday morning is way more even than you'd expect.' - Movement Magazine
