"Vienna based musician Clemens Engert aka Alien Hand Syndrome is a singer/songwriter whose style of music gleans inspiration from disparate music styles such as Alternative Rock, Darkwave, Shoegaze, Gothic, Post Rock, and Industrial. His lyrical inspiration comes from existentialist literature. What makes his sound unique is the structure of his music which leans towards the use of classical cello and piano arrangements that is layered throughout the work. Quite simply his music is heartbreaking, breathtaking and haunting.

Where the classical arrangements begin is where any obvious traditional style ends. His music is very visceral, forcing the listener to take this journey with him through anger, fear, alienation and hope. Every emotion that Clemens is feeling, through both the music and the words, permeates your entire being. There is no turning back.
