Indie rock trio Demob Happy return with explosive new single ‘Mother Machine’, their first new music for 2020.

Following 2019 single releases ‘Autoportrait’ and ‘Less Is More’, ‘Mother Machine’ sees the former Artist Spotlight band Demob Happy complete the trilogy delving headfirst into futuristic sonic realms, rewiring sprawling space-rock with a fierce and direct dynamic energy. Speaking of the track, frontman Matt Marcantonio states: “These last three singles have been like a trilogy, expressing things I’ve felt over the most intense year of touring I think we’ll ever do, and things I’ve learned about where we’re all going. “I wanted to leave ‘Mother Machine’ ’til last as there’s a lot of new sounds in it, and I like what it says about the future.”

Mother Machine’ debuted on Jack Saunders’ BBC Radio 1 show as the first Maida Vale session of 2020. Fans can also expect performances of ‘Autoportrait’, ‘Be Your Man’ and a special rendition of ‘Less Is More’ also featuring a cover of Daft Punk’s ‘Robot Rock’.

Demob Happy are currently recording the anticipated new album to follow 2018’s ‘Holy Doom’.

The band have also announced their first shows of 2020 with UK headline dates in collaboration with DIY Magazine for Independent Venue Week.

Demob Happy announced news of their debut album last week. It’s called “Dream Soda” and it comes out on 2nd October on So Recordings. It’s available to pre-order now on the band’s website in a variety of formats and bundles including CD, double gatefold red vinyl and packages with t-shirts and prints. The full tracklisting is below :

Those troublesome boys from the South Coast Demob Happy have announced details on their debut LP Dream Soda and it’s all getting rather exciting isn’t it?. The announcement comes ahead of their appearance at Reading & Leeds fest at the end of August to bring the release of the album on October 2nd via SO Recordings all the sweeter. The album looks set to offer some more filth and fury for the fans, with the recording taking place in isolation in the Welsh valleys we are expecting something a little off the beaten track.

Of course you can expect their grunge influences and punk tinge to shine through, but it’s the subversion of expectation we are looking forward to. Nobody spends time alone in Wales and comes out the same. Nobody.
