Martin Paul Cuthew releases defiant lead single ‘The Machine’ from his upcoming debut EP

‘The Machine’ is about being trapped in the corporate system, working for “The Man” and dreaming of escape. Mournful vocals are set to a backdrop of grinding industrial sounds and pulsing guitar effects before bursting into an uplifting chorus that affirms we are meant to be free.

“I wrote this song whilst working for a corporation, which was slowly destroying and sucking the life out of me. I felt this couldn’t be what life was all about, so I wanted to make a break, to change things so that I could live a life where I called the shots – in essence, a life free of the Machine.”
