Was it just us, or was the weekend weather actually pretty good? No rain and no wind for once, just some sunshine and a bit of warmth to enjoy and indulge in. Spring is well and truly on the way which means that summer is not far behind and that too can mean only one thing, warm summery tunes.
We’ve already had a few this year to be fair and thanks to London based scando-pop-ers, Sun Up, we’ve another track to kick back and put your shades on for. It may only be March, but we already feel like we need a holiday and “Machines” could well be on the poolside playlist.
The gentle probing percussion is comfort and warmth as gliding guitars nip at the vocals like tropical fish nipping at your toes. It is the vocals which have thus far got the most attention from the blog world and it’s not surprising as, alongside the lilting melody, Frøydis’ voice gives “Machines” its dreamy, summer evening quality. The track is a pristine, white sandy beach where the vocals melt like ice in your cuba libre. We’re practically ready to break out the shorts and straw hat.
Sun Up are playing live this coming Friday, 14 March, at 93 Feet East in London with Man Like Me and Ghostpoet.
