TECHNOPHOBIA: Hailing from Washington, DC, Technophobia has emerged with a sound that reaches back to the early days of EBM and darkwave, yet continually pushes forward. Using hardware and analog synthesizers, Katie and Stephen use a classic approach of layering, sound manipulation, effect processing, and heavy sampling to create their unique sound. The keystone and defining quality of Technophobia is Katie’s vocals. While being melodic, powerful, and poetic they take a pop centric approach to their song writing setting them apart from most in their genre.
Technophobia is a powerful live act. Mixing their strong sound with visuals and lighting they create an atmosphere that matches the intensity of their performance. Technophobia has had the good fortune of play with some of the most seminal bands in their genre: Skinny Puppy, Laibach, Cold Cave, Youth Code, and Douglas McCarthy.
Technophobia’s full length LP Flicker Out and 12” single Negative Space were released in the summer of 2016 on Working Order Records.
