Touch Tone is the sound of a vital young Electronic Pop artist hitting his stride. It is full of playful, unexpected twists and turns. An essential soundtrack to our time, the work does what all great works do - leave the listener strengthened with a fresh perspective and a smile.
I Am Robot And Proud is the name Toronto native Shaw-han Liem works under to create his singular brand of hypnotic, beguiling electronic pop music. Touch Tone is the highly anticipated full-length follow-up to his very popular 2008 album Uphill City. Like the previous record, Touch Tone is electronic pop music that energizes the listener and refreshes the ear yet Shaw-han's skill as clever pop composer has grown even more mesmerizing.
Shaw-Han mixes acoustic instrumentation; piano, guitar and drums seamlessly with his unique electronic keyboard sounds and percussive elements. This isn't difficult, experimental IDM that pulls the listener off the left side of the dial. This is complex composition that manages to simply delight. It’s an exciting sound that gives one the feeling of flying fast & free through a heavenly modern green world of pop, beauty, and sunshine. Your brain chemicals are sure to be balanced after the first minute into the title track. Syncopated multi-instrumental rhythms and playful, repetitive multi-dimensional melodies -- just the elixir your head needs!
