Brooklyn based indie-rock duo Colatura have shared their anthemic new single “Machine” and we are pleased to premiere it. The track features a galloping drum line that maintains the pulse under a layer of cleanly distorted guitars and richly melodic bass. The track merges its influences into a unique hybrid consisting of power-pop bravado à la The Breeders with a surf rock motion to the rhythm. Check out the track as well as an upcoming show date below.

The husband and wife duo, Digo and Jennica Best, respectively, had this to say on the track in a statement to Under the Radar: “‘Machine’ is about the dismissive and heartless way we treat people we don’t understand. The song was initially mined from everyday interactions in the service industry, where we saw how poorly people often treat others when they are perceived as lesser, subservient, or even just different. As we wrote the song and it began to evolve, we realized how easy it is for anyone to be blind to ideas and worlds that are not their own. Everyone is, to a certain extent, caught up in their own routines, their own bubbles, and unable to empathize or understand what others are going through, where they come from, or why they believe what they do. In many ways, we are all a little like machines, going through our days without taking the time to really look around ourselves.”

This single marks the duo’s newest release in a year, following their 2018 debut EP Spring Drew Blood. The single was produced, recorded, and mixed by Garret DeBlock at Strange Weather Studio in Brooklyn, and was mastered by Paul Gold at Salt Mastering.
