Beautiful Machines - Real Love

Something more for synth pop lovers. San Francisco based trio, Beautiful Machines, dropped their sophomore release, Bridges, a couple of months ago.

The LP signals an evolution for this cinematronic-driven band with electronic hooks that are captivating and dreamy.
With vast sonic landscapes and transformative, yet optimistic themes, Bridges builds off of the band's debut album, Disconnect : : Reconnect, but certainly highlights a stylistic shift for the band. As the second installment in a concept album trilogy, Bridges tells a story of disconnecting from an old paradigm and crossing a bridge to a new reality.

"Bridges symbolizes positive transformation and change," says front man, Conrad Schuman. "This album is purposefully arranged to take the listener on a journey, like cycling through a Tron-grid landscape to launching into a euphoric stratosphere."

Beautiful Machines won the 2014 Independent Music Award for Album of the year, and I won't be surprised if they double the victory with Bridges, as this awesome record was entirely self-produced and independently released.

If you're into Depeche Mode, Goldgrapp, Underworld, Cut Copy, MGMT and good electronic rock music in general, you simply can't miss this band: stream Bridges on SoundCloud or on Spotify and download it on iTunes now!
