Nashville-based synth-rock quartet Machines Are People Too
are due to release their sophomore EP, Nickels and Dimes
, tomorrow (7/23), and we're pleased to share the music video for its first single, "Do What You Love".
The video, directed by Dylan Adams
is a montage of summer adolescence, occupied by bicycle motorcades and swimming pool jack-knives. Similarly, the song is a feel-good, sing-along ballad that combines a glittery pop rhythm with frontman Brian Sylvester's uplifting voice backed by a child-like chorus. If you're suddenly feeling the need to dodge your day job for an afternoon in the sun, you're not alone my friends.
MRP2 began as a two piece pop project between friends, JJ Clark(Production) and Brian Sylvester(Vocals) in 2010. Shortly after, with the addition of Cain Lassiter(Keys), and Ivan Garcia(Drums), the band began touring regularly across the nation, playing alongside such acts as Miami Horror, Ghostland Observatory, Thievery Corporation, and Two Fresh. Word of their unique synth-pop sound is spreading fast, and the group expects big things from 2012; with numerous festival appearances including Bonnaroo and Nocturnal Wonderland, a fall tour planned, and an EP release from noted Producer/Synth Player Lars Stalfors(The Mars Volta, Matt & Kim, Funeral Party.) Be sure to snag your free download of their official EP, Dreams.
