From guitars’ electricity to synthesizers’ electronic bleeps, Etienne Machine navigate through musical landscape, at the edge of art-rock, electronica and trip-hop.
Human or machine, a duality evoking 21st century’s spleen and melancholy where feelings and sensations confront electronic sequences and saturated guitars. A confrontation between instinct and reason held by the different voices that the group borrows through sensible and incisive texts.
Connected by a strong and sincere friendship, Lausanne-based band Etienne Machine are some jack-of-all-trades: musicians, producers, lyricists, remixers but also founders of the collective «La Machinerie». This pool of rock and electronic experimentation brings together their vision of art, where each member interferes in the other’s universe. Numerous roles that strengthen the tenacious link bounding all the humans hidden behind the machines’ coldness.
Having already released three EPs between 2019 and 2020 and arrived 3rd in the competition at M4Music 2020’s Demotape Clinic (category “Rock”), Etienne Machine will be releasing « Off & Off » in Spring 2021. This will also celebrate their first collaboration with La Chaux-de-Fonds based label Blizzard Audio Club.
