New label Disorder Recordings is set to release new material from Scottish skygazers The Machine Room in March. The Machine Room packed out many venues throughout 2013 including The Shacklewell Arms, Birthdays and The Bull & Gate as well as appearing at festivals such as T In The Park. It’s 2014 and they’re back ready to release new material that was only previously heard at their enthralling live shows.

3. LOSE A FRIEND
Following the release of singles 'Sweden' (Fierce Panda/Label Fandango) and Chances (Disorder Recordings) The Machine Room release their first EP since 2012's 'Love From A Distance', entitled Sweden.
Last year the indie dream-pop five piece released the first single to be taken from their new EP, catchy lead track'Sweden' via Fierce Panda/Label Fandango. The release attracted a whole load of positive press including being madeTrack Of The Week by respected music/culture website The 405.
The second single to be taken from the 'Sweden' E.P. is'Chances', which is unleashed to the world on 3rd March, having already gained airplay from BBC Introducingand Amazing Radio the chances are this will be the bands most successful single to date.
The Machine Room from Edinburgh consist of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist John Bryden backed up by Adie Emanuel (drums), Cecilia Stamp (synths, keys, guitar, backing vocals), Ryan Marinello (guitar, backing vocals) and Scott Hitchings (bass), exist in their own swirling world of heavyweight rhythms and featherweight melodies. Sweden E.P. is released on Monday 17th March 2014 on Disorder Recordings and is undoubtedly the mildly electro-fied dreamers most catchy and well produced work to date. They have truly found their dreamy shoegazing sound and built upon the success of their previous offerings with complex beats and swirling guitar treats.
