Blending together falsetto melodies and glamorous beats, New Zealand alternative band Skymachine has created a sound that is heavily influenced by past eras, and thrust into the modern day. At the wheel is producer and songwriter Brydon, who is joined live by a band of his good friends and accomplices.
Originally formed when a friend needed a band for a show at a local venue, Skymachine developed around an old MPC and some 808 samples. Over the last two years, the band has played shows all over the country, including festivals such as Festival One, Samstock, and Artbeat, while spending the majority of their time writing and producing.
Recently the band released their first single, ‘Getaway’, recorded at The Sitting Room in Lyttelton with engineer Ben Delaney, and is working hard on their second release, due out soon.
