IAMX is the solo musical project of Chris Corner (of Sneaker Pimps). Corner has repeatedly said that IAMX is very different to his actual, real-life personality and is a kind of quasi ?act?. Whether an act or not, IAMX?s music is primarily concerned with subjects such as outlandish sex, death, narcotic intoxication, bisexuality, obsession, alienation and vague allusions to politics.
Some musicians are meant to be heard but not seen - merely an auditory experience and nothing more. IAMX, on the other hand, isn?t merely a band… it’s an event - a full-on aural and visual attack with the dynamic and inimitable musician and songwriter Chris Corner (of Sneaker Pimps) leading the charge.
With the European marketplace going crazy for his blend of dramatic synth-rock, darkness-infused pop, and intricately-constructed indie dance, IAMX, originally from the Middlesbrough, United Kingdom but currently based in Berlin, has been headlining festivals in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Poland, Ukraine etc. and sharing the stage with Placebo, Franz Ferdinand, and The Cardigans among others.
Like an 80s electro glam soundtrack to a Jan ?vankmajer film or an almost unfathomable hybrid between the sexy swagger of Prince and the cool and collected respectability of Roxy Music, IAMX mixes Chris? erotically-charged vocals with music that is, at once, frantic yet controlled.
