This brilliant follow-up to John Foxx And The Maths’ debut Interplay was recorded and mixed at Benge’s studio in London. Like Interplay, it’s the sound of analogue synthesizers and drum machines – and on one track, feedbacking guitars played by Foxx himself. Although there’s a raw edge to the likes of ‘Falling Down’ and ‘Talk’ this album is arguably more reflective and emotional than Interplay. Though not overtly auto-biographical, there is a sense of looking back over a life and exploring feelings of loss over opportunities and lovers missed, and possible futures that will remain unlived. All these thoughts and angles are expressed in ‘Rear-View Mirror’, ‘Unrecognised’, ‘September Town’, ‘Talk’ and ‘Falling Down’ , as conversations are remembered through dreams and scenes finally played out. Far from wallowing in nostalgia or bitterness, in many ways this is a vital, even sometimes pleasurable experience. At the end of the album those shadow worlds and darker feelings are actually zapped into a new form of life with the macabre sci-fi theatre of ‘the Shadow Of His Former Self’. Meanwhile, ‘Vapour Trails”s upbeat electronic pyschedelia is rooted in the music of Foxx’s own youth, while ‘Tides’ looks widescreen over a lifetime’s experiences, pinned to a fast Motorik beat and still looking to the future as Foxx rides ‘those wild eternal tides, again and again.’ Looking back in order to look forward, the album is about a life lived and a view on those shadow existences that also somehow stay with us. Ultimately it’s a positive and necessary process. It’s that glimpse when things unfold and we feel aware – just for a moment – of The Shape Of Things. This limited edition version of The Shape Of Things also features a hard-back book designed by Jonathan Barnbrook, and a bonus album of remixes by the likes of Ghost Box, Wrangler (featuring Stephen Mallinder from Cabaret Voltaire) and Gary Numan collaborator/remixer Andy Gray. There’s also a brand new track with Tara Busch, who recently supported John Foxx & The Maths on their Interplay Tour.

The musical expressions of Kite is based in a soundscape of emotional layers. With great nerve, a sense of drama, cold beats and serious songwriting-skills Kite moves on into the sad dancefloors like a heartaching update of the genre´s biggest stars; Kraftwerk, Ultravox and early Orchestral Manoevers in the Dark.
