Harsh Symmetry are an exemplary darkwave project, led by musician and producer Julian Sharwarko. A contemporary outfit, Display Model is the debut album from the alias (following a spate of recent singles), spanning eight synthpop haunters, with influences from 80s new wave, goth and shoegaze abounding. Sharwarko concept of “harsh symmetry” essentially gets at feelings of inadequacy and personal appearance, with the album delving deep into ideas of identity, alienation, and consumerism – with lyrics inspired by Moore’s tumultuous experience as a de facto fashion model, in his overt criticism of social media and musical spectacle.
