No Machine Unveil New Video & London Date!
aaamusic | On 18, Oct 2010
No Machine is the musical incarnation of Athens born; London based twin brothers Al and Emil Rivers.
The band are set to release their second single “On Ebay” in the UK on the 22nd November. “On Ebay” is not your usual breakup song, it tells a humorous story of a guy who is tired of his girlfriend and decides to puts her on sale on Ebay, but then sort of regrets it.
The classically trained brothers were born in Greece, raised in Portugal and speak English as a mother tongue, making them a truly multinational outfit. They have been writing and playing music together for more than half of their lives taking musical journeys through ska, progressive rock and punk to find their own vibe, which they describe as ‘a new blend of psychedelic pop’. Through this, coupled with several band names and personnel changes down the line, they have found their ideal line-up and are now ready to bring No Machine to the world.
The concept behind the band was their need to sound 100% real and relate to the listener/ audience.
They are about making a human connection, all instruments played live by talented musicians. Making that emotional connection is also the concept behind the boys’ debut album, which promises to be a stirring affair, as they continue to exemplify with their second single, “On Ebay”.
The track was recorded at the famous RAK studios and mixed by Cenzo Townshend (who works with the likes of Editors, Florence + the Machine and Bat for Lashes) and produced by the Rivers Brothers themselves.
The band already have dozens more tracks under their belts, just waiting to be recorded, and have already had many UK gigs, with more to come. And unlike other pop siblings, famous for high profile quibbling and spats, these two guys are happy to let their music do all the talking: “Sure we get pissed off at each other sometimes, but we’re really positive when we make our music. We just seem to think along the same lines”. “On Ebay” is set for release on 22nd November, 2010.
