The Diabolical Machines / Press

“Shimmering with groovy Farfisa organ and the chime-like sounds of tenor ukulele, Drag You Away overflows with clever, observant wordplay married to maddeningly hummable hooks...full of the joyful insouciance and sparkling melodies of ’60s garage-rock and girl-group bands.”

“Working with co-producer Britt Robisheaux, the Machines, billing its sound as “boutique indie pop,” capture that infectious exuberance on this four-track, 10-minute EP. The title track feels like a cartwheel in the sunshine…”

“Spending much of the past year calibrating their sound and lineup, the Machines have engineered an extremely listenable sound adding girl group glory to the fuzz of 90s pop…Subtle and driving, the songs are sharp, gaining richness with each listen.”

“Our great Texas bands series continues with a band who now makes their home in Fort Worth, but I’m pretty sure is originally from Weirdsville. Talking, of course, about The Diabolical Machines. Electric ukelele, bass & guitar plucking away like crazy, new school meets very old school jams, everybody singing – “thrilling mysteries of sound” indeed. I assume that everyone knows that “weird” is one of my bigger compliments -The Diabolical Machines has a really original sound.”
