Track taken from upcoming album due in April.

They’re called Cyborg Asylum, and the NYC-based producer-singer duo of David Varga and John Tumminia serves up a heady, intoxicated mélange of what they describe as “electro post-industrial alt-rock.” Indeed – that’s a pretty apt description of the music on their forthcoming long-player, Never Finished, Only Abandoned. We’re honored to have a preview for the readership, too. Check out “My Metallic Dream”:
Tumminia says, of the track, “‘My Metallic Dream’ explores the thoughts of a being who may not be able to recognize, process or clearly describe the experience of dreaming.”
With the album due out April 18, the two men are looking towards a busy year. They’ve been hailed for their “sharply crafted beats and grooves blended with beautiful melodies and harmonies [that take] listeners on an emotionally charged, alluring, and at times, ominous journey.”
They’ve got the background to bolster up those assertions, too. Tumminia grew up in a music family in Philadelphia, eventually moving to NYC to become a manager of Electric Lady Studios. He also worked extensively with the bands God Is Black and Fringehead prior to hooking up with Varga as Cyborg Asylum.
Varga, for his part, has scored commercials, TV, film and video games, and when it came time to create a complete, standalone album of his music, he tapped his friend Tumminia’s talents. Upon completion of their sessions, they sent the material to Phil Jones (a cousin of Varga) in England to add the guitar parts. Edd Mann also added some guitar, and Rachel Varga contributed violin.
