Machine People

Machine People





THEY ARE BACK….who are? Machine People that’s who; the quartet formerly known as Rising Tide who were signed to the ultra cool Sound Central Label.

Remember them, they released the magnificent ………… EP that had heads turning with their super sexy ‘Everything Has Changed’ and the lyrically enthralling ‘Books, Boxes and Video Games’, a paean to lost youth, lost love and lost lies.

However with a better name, an improved sound, a new record label, some great production and a hoard of uber-friendly rock tracks this 4 piece have metamorphosed into a classic indie rock giant gnawing at the guts of the establishment.

Fronted by main songwriter and vocalist Martyn Wilson with a plethora of haunting evocative tidal tunes swamping the seafronts of the local South coast, Machine People are THE BAND to watch in 2013.

Think Radiohead meeting Rufus Wainwright down a dark alleyway with a hint of Queen and a dash of Reef thrown in and these guys are on the road to stardom in a bulletproof tank with all guns blazing and nothing, and I mean nothing, is going to stop them.

With sultry vixen Emma-Louise Newlyn providing contemplative keyboards, piano and rhythm guitar and backed by the brilliantly innovative yet tight as a ‘cat in a drainpipe’ rhythm section of Adam Rutherford on bass and Frankie Sparrowhawk on drums, the band are certainly a sum of the parts. Compelling melodies, introversion at the right moments and a breathtaking array of distorted dirty sounds this 4 piece are already attracting attention from A&R in the capital and finding interest further afield in Germany with MD Mario Christiani stating ‘this band will be huge, the best band I heard in 2012.’

The debut Machine People album with the provisional title of ’Thought Police’ is currently being recorded in the Sussex countryside and just to show how serious the band and Broken Biskits, the record label are, you’ll find on board on the production side Jon Astley (Rolling Stones, The Who, Abba, Eric Clapton) and Richard Rogers (The Prodigy, Amy Studt, A-ha, Hazel O’Connor) with Richard doubling up on A&R duties too. David Pemberton A & R Sony said "Machine People are certainly one to watch this year''

If you’re looking for some great song writing, crafted musicianship and a sharp production then you’ve come to the right place. Let the Machines Rock!
