"I've always responded to variety, so I think expressing variety in a way that is palatable and pretty is really what I would like to do," Holmes says.

Makeup artist Jader transformed Tyler Holmes into an otherworldly alien for the album art of Holmes' project, 'Invisible Island.' Makeup artist Jader transformed Tyler Holmes into an otherworldly alien for the album art of Holmes' project, 'Invisible Island.' (Jader) Holmes built on that foundation for their new EP, DEMO, which came out last month digitally and on cassette through Ratskin. It takes its name from the idea that human beings are always evolving -- a demo version of ourselves, never a finished product.

Holmes made the project in the wake of a four-year relationship. "Invisible Island had a lot of things with video games and drugs, being lit," says Holmes. "DEMO is a little bit more introspective; it's more about me viewing myself as a demo or an almost finished version and being okay with the different demos instead of being any one thing."

Unlike the hodgepodge of sounds on Invisible Island, DEMO narrows its focus to experimental pop with an interplay of textured electronics that shift from soaring and melodic to gritty pounding to droning. The project is eclectic in typical Holmes fashion, but the artist swaps the rap and R&B elements of their previous work for a deeper exploration of electronic subgenres like noise, synthpop, and industrial.
