Adding Machine – Ships To Sink

Adding Machine are one of those bands that have been quietly brewing beneath the surface of Bristols experimental progressive music scene. Un like most progressive bands adding Machine take their influences from the likes of Georgio Morroder and John Carpenter soundtracks, playing heavily on the eerie synths Clunking beats and haunted vocals.

Ships To Sink is Adding Machines debut Single, it crackles with ghostly atmospherics of the heavy pounding synths roll right through out the song, building into a heavy frenzy, with the icy cold slabs of guitars and crunchy drums all topped off by the haunting vocals. There is something like the sonic equivalent of Black Magic about Ships To Sink, it almost feels like they are talking about the concept of life and death.

Its the black hearted eerie atmospherics that the likes of Broadcast and Sisters With Transistors used to openly thrive on. It is a quite creepy yet captivating listen. You can almost imagine John Carpenter using the synths to set the tone for one of his many movies, or them sound tracking a 1960’s Italian horror film. It is Dark and Brooding and every other atmospheric word you can ever imagine. Its good stuff!

About bigjeffbristol

I am someone from Bristol in England who is deeply obsessed with live music! its pretty much like an OCD styled obsession that means pretty much every night I am out. I like being down the fron for shows, because then I can feel the music pulsing through me and I am not going to lie to you, I like to dance a lot. Which can make me at times incredibly annoying because of being 6ft4 tall with blonde curly locks so I am the Thoroughly Annoying Blonde!. and I like to preach my geeky musical inertia to people!
