AlienEmoji aim ray guns at the disingenuous.


Like those approaching a dubious pond, Montreal trifecta AlienEmoji has reason to be wary of leeches. Such is the wave on their debut single, which finds Zydell sliding through over production from P-Yote & Saska. The conjured instrumental is mischevious to say the least, combining a coy synth line with reverberated string hits. The lush arrangement provides Zydell with ample room to flex, delivering a multifaceted performance both lyrically and vocally.

"Is he fishing though, so original, got so high level should be criminal," spits Zydell, "think maybe your decision was subliminal, you a different person in the digital." Such is often the case, as the digital world has provided ample cover for those emboldened by anonymity. Yet Zydell, P-Yote, and Saska see through the smokescreen. 

While new-school tenets ground "Leeches" in a contemporary realm, there is a respectable adherence to the principles of "BARS." That is to say, the ad-lib to flow ratio must be balanced accordingly. In that sense, AlienEmoji deftly tow the line, providing something for all manner of listener. 

Quotable Lyrics

Head to SB on a whim right
Three hours out of the limelight
Hendrix with the flowers on a motorbike
Or he fishing though, so original
Got so high level should be criminal
Think maybe your decision was subliminal
You a different person in the digital
