God From The Machine is evidence of a talented duo eager to make waves and show the world what they are capable of. Their newest track, The River, is a testament to their versatility and unstoppable creativity.
God From The Machine – The River
God From The Machine was born as the creative outlet for Joe Shanks and Sam Dyche, gaining significant notoriety since the release of their debut song Paralysed. But the actual game changer for this act came with the tune Given Up, which has earned over 25,000 streams on Spotify.
After such an important milestone, GFTM is back with a composition that steps away from their already accustomed sound, opting to dive deep into a more poignant theme, displaying a vulnerable side that takes their songwriting skills to a whole new level.
“The River came together following a bout of writer’s block surrounded by the frustration of writing for a new project, whilst coming to terms with the loss of another. This in turn inspired the lyrics to focus on themes of anxiety, self-worth, and the daunting notion of wondering what the future will hold”. Said the band about the single.
The emotional distress of this piece is delivered flawlessly thanks to a combination of shimmering guitars, minimal drums, and especially an impactful vocal performance that caught your attention from beginning to end.
The River is a brutally honest showcase of songwriting maturity, perfectly paired with an outstanding production.
In less than a year, God From The Machine has developed a musical identity that keeps evolving significantly, and in the process, demonstrating that those thousands of streams are not a casualty, cementing themselves as a mighty presence in the always challenging Indie rock landscape.
You can’t miss God From The Machine next Friday, October 28th, at the Village Hotel Bar at Farnborough, where they will perform a set of covers and originals.
