In the late 1970s and early '80s, Gary Numan bec essay writer ame a new wave messiah with his paranoia-filled robo-rock tune "Cars."

Times have changed and we've grown to love new technology instead of fear it, and no one seems to be more aware of that than Numan himself.

Numan's newer music, specifically the critically-acclaimed "Splinter," his 20th studio release, is louder and more aggressive, with more focus on the rock and less on the robo. You might hear similarities between Numan's new work and that of the Nine Inch Nails, and interestingly, both artists have cited each other as creative influences. Songs like "Love Hurt Bleed" share some similarities to Numan's early, repetitive electro sound, but the album as a whole is murkier, more emotive and more orchestral.

When he performed a stripped down set at KDHX, Numan went even further from the sound you might remember from 1979's "Cars." It's a sound 30 years in the making, one that not only relies on new technology, but also takes his influence on others as a push.
