about

archipelago represents a new direction in machìna's musical story. These 10 tracks are a transition that is influenced by the artist's switch to a more analogue based set-up, with the modular system forming the basis for a new harmony between vocals and electronic sound. Although it is by no means the finished article, archipelago has been a process, a platform to express the new sounds, textures and emotions of machìna.

The title 'archipelago' references the idea that each song can exist independent of the whole, but it is something invisible that ties the album together. The concept of each song formed through abstract investigations of ordinary words, and objects. ‘neon' takes neon lights and looks into the fragility of aesthetic beauty. ‘315 Heda' was inspired by a tired old fishing village in Izu, and delves into the irrelevance of history in the now. 'Past' is simply about the memories of a past holiday, and uses field recordings to express the loneliness felt in the streets of Paris. Each song is conceptually autonomous, yet through machìna's visceral vocals and resonating melodies each isolated track comes together to form a whole.
