No Machine is the new music project of Athens born, London based, twin brothers Al and Emil Rivers; they make real music, made live, by real musicians and centred around psychedelic pop.
Toast the Toaster is their debut single and is out 19th April. It’s a solid pop song, with some unique vocals – it reminded me of a young Groove Armada with their impressive live band.
They explain the song as ‘ losing yourself for a bit’ the track was recorded at Mayfair studios which was where Radiohead’s ‘OK Computer’, Blur’s 1997 album, ‘Blur’ were both recorded.
The track was mixed by mixer Cenzo Townshend, who is responsible for mixing the likes Snow Patrol, Franz Ferdinand and Florence and The Machine.
Unlike many duos which are brothers, they seem to quite like each other and prefer to let their music do 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.”
