Aubergine Machine Mystifies With New Single “Only”
An exciting collaboration between world renowned multi-platinum selling producer Ian Carey and new-comer to the scene Shanti Ellis, Aubergine Machine has caught our eye with their fresh, new single “Only.” Between Carey’s extensive knowledge of cutting-edge production techniques and Ellis’ indie-pop laced vocals, Aubergine Machine have crafted a cultured sound for themselves.
Synth-laden melodies and smoldering vocals meld seamlessly together to create a curious blend of angelic future bass. While their mechanized moniker may give this interesting duo an almost sinister aura, their sound is immensely organic in actuality. That’s what happens when a group drops out of social constructs, rebuilds their studio in the middle of an obscure tropical landscape, and throws cultural conventions to the wayside.
With their latest single, Aubergine Machine display their ability to blend genres with ease. Throughout this hauntingly emotive track, we can see this duo’s world-class talent on full display. By using his substantial experience and music savvy, Carey effortlessly fuses the bounce and percussion of hip-hop with an unmistakable indie-pop appeal. Ellis takes center stage with her hypnotic vocals and ethereal voice.
Having both traveled the world in their own right while picking up many influences along the way, their mental catalog of music includes everything from pre-EDM electronica to the current sounds of future bass. This is perhaps this duo’s greatest appeal, their ability to take incredibly youthful sonic textures, and pair them with a mature and authentic energy. Truly indie at heart, the dedication to every aspect of their artistic vision down to the cover art itself further personifies the commitment to their craft.
Their forthcoming EP entitled Wildlife is set to be a luminary exploration throughout the promising, and at times mystifying, vision of Aubergine Machine. Check out the band’s Soundcloud and Facebook, and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for their upcoming EP, Wildlife.
