Machinista (S)


(official homepage)

Swedish electronic-pop band from Sweden

In december 2012 John and Richard decided to try out a new fresh project beside their other bands.
The first result was a cover of David Bowie´s "Heroes", and the band also did a video for the song.
The feedback was awesome from start and the band decided to move along with own written songs.

The song "Molecules and carbon" followed the same procedure with a video and also
a soundcloud account was added to let more people access to the music.
Once again the feedback was really good and the band started to have followers on facebook/Soundcloud etc.

Also magazines like Sonic Seducer, Sideline, Peek-a-Boo, Elektroskull etc. started to encourage the band.
The same with radio stations, like Nebelwelten (Germany), and Synthopia (Australia) etc.

Machinista – Molecules And Carbon

Erst neulich wurden Machinista im Rahmen des Cat Rapes Dog Comebacks erwähnt.

Hinter Machinista verbergen sich gestandene Musiker: John Lindqwister (Cat Rapes Dog, A Life Lived, Basswood Dollies etc.) produziert zusammen mit Richard Flow (Vision Talk, Haze For Sale etc.) melodische und elektronisch-poppige Songs.

Nach der Interpretation des Bowie-Klassikers Heroes liegt mit Molecules And Carbon ein brandneuer Clip vor, der musikalisch Fans des typisch schwedischen Synthie- und Electropops ansprechen sollte.
