Julian Shah-Tayler a.k.a. ‘The Singularity’ has premiered his new video for the track titled ‘Devil Knows’ on Jammerzine. A vivid combination of a pop hit in waiting and electro-rock mix with a solid rhythm and beat, this version of ‘Devil Knows’ gives us a journey into collaboration with sub-bass highlights and sprinkles of synth.

The video captures the antics of a dainty dominatrix played by Eva Strangelove and her day-to-day goings-on from the mundane to the strange giving me the impression that we all have our own lifestyle and what’s normal and not is left to our own interpretation. What’s also normal is the meaning of the song. Loss is a constant in life and how we lose touch with those around us, whether it be from distance in location or distance in views or anything else is normal as well and, through that loss, we always gain a part of ourselves.

The video was “socially distanced” by the exquisite “Eva Strangelove” famed burlesque performer (and clearly developed comedic actress) from her house and dungeon. David j provides artful interjections from his home in LOS ANGELES To be featured in the ruby rock version. Julian broadcasts from the inferno of a burning Pasadena, California.

About Julian Shah-Tayler

Julian Shah-Tayler a.k.a. ‘The Singularity’ presents ‘Devil Knows’, his new swagger-filled single with the A-single featuring the original version, the B-side involves three notable members of alternative rock royalty – David J, MGT (Mark Gemini Thwaite), and drummer Marc Slutsky.

Aptly named ‘Devil Knows Ruby Rock Version’ due to the fact that all three of these collaborators were involved in Peter Murphy’s extensive international Bauhaus Ruby celebration tour. Bassist David J needs no introduction, having founded Love and Rockets and Bauhaus. Mark Gemini Thwaite is best known for his prolific work and touring history with the likes of Tricky, The Mission UK, Peter Murphy, Ashton Nyte, and The Wonder Stuff.

This new track follows hot on the trail of his single ‘Evolution’, which also involves contributions by MGT and Gene Micofsky (and the b-side remix by Mark Gemini Thwaite himself).



“This song is about losing people. The devil is always present when we lose connection with people. The death of Love, a break in the heart. Communication breakdown. But we try and try,” explains Julian Shah-Tayler.

Hailing from Leeds, England and now LA-based, singer, writer and producer Julian Shah-Tayler makes electro-rock new wave ‘intellipop’ for the 30th century. He is currently working with the legendary Robert Margouleff (Stevie Wonder, Devo) on his next album, releasing a few tasters along the way.

Having spent much time as a touring musician, Julian has experienced the pain of meeting and “breaking up with” people every night.

After completing his degree at York University, Julian moved to London as a singer-songwriter with classical training on piano and self-taught on guitar. After several abortive records deals with music industry legend Alan McGee, he joined the hip electroclash outfit Whitey as co-writer/ guitarist, recording many of those songs in his nascent home studio.

After parting ways with his bandmates, Julian moved to L.A. to launch his own project The Singularity. There, he has had considerable success with TV and film licenses, known for his work on ‘Plush’, ‘Riot on Redchurch Street’ and Disney’s ‘Maleficent’.  He won a Golden Trailer award, along with Daisy O’Dell, for his work with Lana Del Ray on the trailer for the latter film.

In addition to scoring music with O’Dell for the two-time Emmy winning ‘Actors on Actors’ TV show, his music has been performed for Robert De Niro, Bill Clinton, and Martin Scorsese via the Unite for Humanity charity at the Oscars.

Julian also recorded an unreleased album with Joaquin Phoenix and Antony Langdon (Spacehog), as well as directing Island Def Jam artist Kerli 4 for songs he co-wrote with Siobhan Fahey (Bananarama, Shakespear’s Sister). His remix of Nico’s ‘These Days’ with Daisy O’Dell was featured as KCRW’s “one to watch”. He also co-founded the ‘Art Angeles’ charity, teaching underprivileged kids music in Watts.

When he is not writing and recording original material or producing other artists, Julian Shah-Tayler is selling out venues with his David Bowie tribute band ‘The Band That Fell To Earth’, his Depeche Mode tribute band ‘Strangelove’ and moonlighting as singer-keyboardist in The Cure tribute band ‘The Cured’
