Echo Machine started in 2018 as a recording project following the demise of their previous bands, but is now a multi-limed rock monster.
They wanted to experiment with new writing and recording techniques and to push themselves into new places, but couldn’t really escape the their primary desire to just be sweaty humans making very loud and chaotic noise for other sweaty humans. For them the whole point of this glittery charade has always been connection with other people.
Echo Machine released their debut album Instant Transmissions in February 2020. The main themes of the album come from feeling disconnected in our super-connected world. Of being jobless and debt riddled, trying to form relationships and figure out who we are, in a world that wants more and more to reduce us to data.
