The alternative-rock project known as the Invisible Machine have released their debut self-titled LP album, “The Invisible Machine.” The album comprises ten original songs for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes, making for a highly textured introduction to this eclectic and powerful alt-rock group in 2015. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the support of the corporate music industry. Driving, soaring, and viscerally evocative, “The Invisible Machine” by the Invisible Machine is a rock record that defines modern alternative rock in chords everyone can appreciate.
The Invisible Machine cite as main artistic influences such titanic groups as Pink Floyd, Queen, Live, and Muse. While these groups may not seem to have many similarities at first glance, on closer inspection their sound dovetails very intuitively, a common thread running through each of them that is very much like the sound and style of the Invisible Machine. Melodic, symphonic, and marked by both incredibly strong songwriting and consistently impressive performances, the “Invisible Machine” LP is a satisfying listen from start to finish.
At the heart of the Invisible Machine’s music are lyrics which describe life, society, and the world as a whole. Asked to describe the overall themes of their first album, the Invisible Machine write:
“Modern society makes us assume roles that sometimes drive us away from our essence and individuality. We are seen as consumers, as workers, as means to an end, but our value as individuals is sometimes overlooked.
“In a city of millions a single person can somehow lose themselves and in order to reach success and security can give up their dreams and the things that made them different from everyone else. The Invisible Machine is that thing that takes humanity from us. The idea of invisibility is connected with how the origin of this process is difficult to put a finger on. This dehumanization is a part of our system, of the economic model, even the way we relate to each other nowadays. It’s become a part of our modern culture.”
The mastermind of the Invisible Machine is Juan Luis Barletti, who wrote each of the album’s songs and also produced the LP. Barletti says the songs on his new record explore the above scenario in terms of individuals.
“Most songs in the album describe characters struggling with this process and trying to find themselves in a place that seems to be taking something away from them,” he writes. “The last two songs question this system and ask whether we can stay true to our essence and defy this invisible machine.”
“The Invisible Machine” by the Invisible Machine is available online worldwide.
