In their few years together, Belfast based 4-piece Before Machines have built up a reputation for engaging live shows, including support slots for Cashier No.9 and Cymbals Eat Guitars, and for their intricate song craft.
Their latest single release, "Ornaments", should help the band to cement their reputation as Belfast's noisy upstarts. Mixed by the wonderful Rocky O'Reilly of Oppenheimer fame, "Ornaments" has the feeling of early Biffy Clyro, with its slightly off-kilter rhythm, infectious guitar line and powerful gang vocals. It's a rather good song, and one which bodes well for their fantastic upcoming album.
"Ornaments" is available as a free download, and is taken from Before Machine's debut album "Tundra", which will be released at the end of the year.
