Words by Paul Brown
At the time of writing, the sun’s splitting my patio slabs and I’m feeling positively summery, in that desperate grasping way we do in Britain because we know it’ll probably go back to being dreary in a matter of days. Just as well then, that my present audio accompaniment is 'Camino de Soda' by Edinburgh six-piece The Machine Room.
Taken from the 'Love From a Distance' EP, released in March, 'Camino de Soda' is an invigorating burst of sultry pop. It’s the mid point between Friendly Fires and Errors, at once unapologetically, irresistibly catchy and playfully experimental.
The band play a number of shows north of the border in the next few weeks, calling at Glasgow Art School on Saturday, Glasgow Stairway on Sunday, Edinburgh Wee Red Room on Friday June 1st before heading to Kinross to play T in the Park the first weekend in July. They’ll probably even manage to bring the sun out too.
