Experimental rock group Battles released 'My Machines' on August 15th, 2011. Taken from their second studio album as the band's second single, it was released through Warp Records and features iconic 80's singer Gary Numan.
The humorous video for 'My Machines' focuses on a set of escalators. A man and his daughter walk towards them, only for the little girl to run up the escalator. The man follows after her but drops his bag. When he stoops to pick it up, he falls on the escalator and becomes stuck. While he is stuck there, the rest of the band appears alongside Gary Numan, playing the energetic song on their respective instruments.
Battles were formed in New York in 2002 and features Ian Williams and Dave Konopka on guitars and John Stanier on drums. Although their name may be unfamiliar to British audiences, Battles has had their songs 'Race: In' and 'Atlas' played in the second season of teen drama 'Skins'. The two songs were taken from their debut album 'Mirrored', which was released in 2007 to positive reviews from critics. Their songs have also appeared in other media, such as the video games 'LittleBigPlanet' and 'Major League Baseball 2K8' and the film 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse'.
