HUMANS ETCETERA is an experimental rock outfit and passion project of China-based American singer, songwriter, and recording artist Christopher Henry. Primarily a solo endeavor, occasionally infused with collaborative performances, the music of HUMANS ETCETERA is created in the time between work with his other bands: Fuck Your Birthday, Polyphozia 怕繁杂 (both in which Henry is the singer/guitarist), and Night Tides 潮汐狩猎 (in which Henry’s on drums). Beginning in 2012 as an outlet for recording experiments and songwriting, HUMANS ETCETERA continues to be an integral piece in Henry’s ever-expanding musical output.
HUMANS ETCETERA’s eleventh album, Part Of Being Human, is now confirmed for release, appropriately delivering eleven new songs. The record sees Christopher Henry performing vocals, guitars, bass, keyboard, and drums for the entire album, with backing vocals from Lin Xiaoyang on the song “Lovebirds.” Henry recorded and mixed the tracks in Wenzhou, China and also created the cover art, after which the record was mastered by Pinggong in Yiwu, China.
"Featuring a very retro sound reminiscent of new wave, Henry really paints a stunning picture […] an evocative, expressive slice of electronic pop, attractive in style and genre to both younger and more middle-aged fans of the genre." - V13
"It’s an intricate and eclectic set of songs, combining grungy rockers with complex time signatures, progressive structures with melodic hooks, and thoughtful, introspective narratives." - Treble
"...you should be more than pleasantly surprised with the sheer quality and emotion portrayed in this body of work – it’s truly astonishing. We would highly recommend listening to this project if you are into more experimental genres of rock, as this will most definitely blow you away. The progression within this album is second to none. Combined with outstanding musicianship, HUMANS ETCETERA have most definitely put themselves back on the map." - Distorted Sound Magazine
