London synth pop trio Mano's Daughter have unveiled a mechanic new video for their newest single 'The Machine'. The song is set to feature on their debut EP 'Smart' which is due for release on March 31st 2014 through Smart & Shiver Records.
The video has been directed by Ian Gathard and begins with an image of a sleepy young girl lip synching to the song before singer Sarah Carter takes over the visual, dressed in a futuristic style outfit. There's images of machine cogs and robot dancing to enhance the metaphor of the song, but plenty of energy to reflect the dynamism of the track. 'The Machine' is a driving pop number with dreamy, rich synth sounds and high-pitched, echoing vocals which get stronger as the song goes on adding heavier synths and guitars.
The band; who are Sarah, synth player Matthias Garrick and drummer Dan See; recently released 'The Machine' as a free download which is sure to rapidly expand their already ever-increasing fanbase in which they are proud to include comedian/ musician Tim Minchin. Influenced by the likes of Bon Iver and Moloko, Mano's Daughter themselves have been previously compared to Florence + The Machine and Little Dragon.
