shadow of funk
Richard h kirk continues his momentum of excellence with an ep of bubbling industrial bangers.
Cabaret Voltaire is Richard H Kirk and Shadow of Fear was the band’s first studio album in 26 years and was released in 2020 to critical acclaim. The single Shadow of Funk delves deeper into Cabaret Voltaire’s arsenal of “vocal samples, harsh rhythms and threatening detonations” (Classic Pop). “Shadow Of Fear is a brash and confident rebirth… Richard H. Kirk has chosen a good time to revive the Cabs’ ominous industrial funk” UNCUT 8* “Masterclass in shapeshifting disco… clinches these industrial shadow-dwellers’ influence” MOJO 4/5 “Kirk is intent on pushing forward, ensuring that the hints of familiarity never come with an accompanying tang of comforting nostalgia.” THE GUARDIAN 4/5 “A lot has changed in the past 26 years, but what hasn’t altered is Cabaret Voltaire’s knack for eerie but danceable post-punk.” NME.
