The Bad Machines

Ever had your heart broken? The Bad Machines have. From car-crash whispers to white-picket desires, The Bad Machines' songs about life, love and lies flip from longing to loud in the murmur of an irregular heartbeat.

Michelle Margherita's lilting voice drips sugar over Paul Scott's grinding guitars, off-kilter beats and giddy keys to produce a shimmering electro-indie-pop sound that sits not entirely comfortably between bitter-sweet and just plain bitter.

The Bad Machines aren’t the usual girl-vocal/boy-technology pop duo. On stage, they are a chaotic mix of instrument swapping, guitar throwing, judo moves and stark stillness. When they rock, they really rock, but they also know how to be quiet, which gives their live shows a powerful, electrifying quality.
