‘The Machine’ is a song that I expect from a well seasoned band. Learning that Charlotte & Thieves have yet to release a full album I was pleasantly surprised. This song is an indication of the sound on their EP due out in Autumn (Fall). As this is the case I am really looking forward to that! Not just a good sounding song it also has a deep meaning. It is about how females like myself artistic expression can be bogged down in our daily routine. Our society does squash many females and this song explores why the machine of society suppresses our artistic abilities. The vocals are a super high calibre and one that I could listen to all day. Hit prediction – very high chance! Take a listen here.
