Machineries Of Joy

‘Machineries Of Joy’, the follow-up to the band’s 2010 album ‘Valhalla Dancehall’, was written in the Berwyn mountains in north Wales and recorded in Brighton with Dan Smith and mixer Ken Thomas (David Bowie, Sigur Ros).

“We’d like to think the album is warm and restorative,” says singer Yan. “Various things are touched on in the words – Franciscan monks, ketamine, French female bodybuilders turned erotic movie stars. The world often seems a mad, hysterical place at the moment.You can’t really be oblivious to that, but we’d like the record to be an antidote – a nice game of cards in pleasant company.”
