machineheart Announce North American 2019 Tour + Share Emotional New Video For “Let You Down”
December 3, 2018 BY Nettwerk
Los Angeles-based ethereal indie pop quartet machineheart have premiered their emotional video for new album track “Let You Down” via Spindle Magazine. The track, which premiered last month via Clash, is from their forthcoming debut full-length album People Change, out February 8, 2019. The band also announces a North American tour in support of People Change alongside You Me At Six and Dreamers, starting February 21st in Boston, MA and ending March 11th in Los Angeles, CA.
Of the video and song, machineheart’s bewitching frontwoman Stevie Scott says, “’Let You Down’ always felt incredibly raw and delicate as it represents a formative transition in our band. Our director, Nathan Presley, was able to capture both those things so well – quite literally a hanging in the balance. Even while we were filming, everybody on set was in tears. It was really special. It felt so beautiful and true, and a side of the story we don’t usually get to tell.”
People Change was co-produced by Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Adele) and recorded between Los Angeles, Seattle-area and Toronto. From quite introspection to lush soundscapes, the album explores how emotional dissonance can yield beauty.
machineheart–rounded out by Harrison Allen (drums), Carman Kubanda (electric guitar) and Jake Randle (bass)–released their debut EP “Cruel World” in 2017 and lit up the scene with their infectious, alternative sounds. Soon they were a Top 5 Spotify Emerging Artist and named one of NME’s “2017 Break-Out Bands.” Today, the EP has close to 50 million combined streams.
