A former Band of the Day from way back, it’s great to have an update from Portugal’s Machinergy…
Portugal-based trio Machinergy has just released a new video for the song “Sounds Evolution” from the 2014 album with the same name. The band spent the last months working on this ambitious videoclip.
Rui Vieira [vocals and guitar] says:
We recorded it all in chroma key. This technique allowed us to create the background we wished for during the editing.
“Sounds Evolution” is dominated by green tones and there is a reason for that. The song deals with the unstable and fragile Mother Nature but it goes further than that:
We wanted to denounce the big business that nature is nowadays. Big worldwide corporations couldn’t care less about pollution. In fact, they advocate it and make us pay tons of taxes in the name of recycling and other stuff but at the same time they produce in Pakistan, India and China anyhow, at any price. That’s why the chorus is “Beware the green lie”.
Machinergy has so far released two studio albums, Rhythmotion  and Sounds Evolution , and the EP Rhythm Between Sounds .
