“denial” by MAQUINA

MAQUINA (Machine), recently announced their new album Prata (Silver), will arrive on April 5th on Fuzz Club (The Men). Ahead of the LP’s arrival, the group have shared lead-single “denial”. In support of the release, MAQUINA. will also soon head out on a European tour with A Place To Bury Strangers over April, followed by festival appearances lined up at Primavera Porto, Sonic Blast and Fuzz Club 2024.

MAQUINA on “denial:”

““denial” is about an inner turmoil and restless contemplation. The raw, haunting lyrics explore the struggle to find solace within oneself, amidst a sea of conflicting emotions. The plea to ‘shut me down’ echoes the yearning for respite in the face of overwhelming darkness.”

PRATA, recorded and co-produced by Carlos de Jesus (Sunflowers) at Arda Recorders, they write: “This album was composed spontaneously in the studio throughout the year 2023. It’s music of colour, delving into depths and dimensions that resonate with scale and contrast. Pushing sounds together to make noise and pushing noise together to make sounds. Emphasising textures that evoke feelings and soundscapes rather than relying solely on textual narratives. The music breathes life into auditory canvases, painting sonic panoramas pushing into a world of tactile sensation and immersive experiences.”
