The Answering Machine have been hailed as Manchester’s ‘most likely to..’ since their fledgling introduction back in Autumn 2006. Back then the band were a fresh-faced trio, armed solely with a canon of jittery, indie-pop gold and a drum machine.
Forming out of all-night parties and gigs on a Manchester campus, Martin, Pat and Gemma bunkered-up in a cold and desolate bedroom to grapple with melodic, poetic and simply joyous pop music.[youtube VvgcKeFKgOU nolink]
