Stockholm’s Emmon return with another dancefloor-oriented single. “Machines” builds on their EBM/pop fusion, combining Emma Nylén’s soaring vocals with Alan Wilder touches in the instrumentation.
There is a new album coming in October. Nylén explains the concept for the latest single:
The song, “Machines,” is a simple declaration of my constant love for the electronic music scene. About how much I love to be inspired and create music with different software and hardware synths, program midi and trigger different effects. This wonderful nerdism puts me in a state of mind that in the longer run creates both a mental and a physical addiction and a really strong attraction.
It is a reciprocated relationship. Emmon has moved in a harder direction over time, but “Machines” is no less impressed with the soul of the Swedish scene than the solid pop of “Lips on Fire.” Now they play on bills with Covenant and Test Dept, forging a combination of drive and melody that is tested in action.
