egokiller, a Pop/Dance/Rock/Jam band from Leeds, UK is coming out full force with their latest single, “Talk to the Machines.” Its a perfect mash-up of Power-Pop and 80’s synth perfection. All elements come together to create a guilty musical pleasure that’s well worth indulging.
This song has a funky vibe with great instrumentation. The guitars are great, the bass player is mad talented, and the keyboard riffs are slick. G-Reg provides that perfect deep, slithery vocal performance that’s heard on many popular 80’s tunes. The singing is not superb, but it’s decent. The track is very catchy and has a good beat that gets your foot tapping. The lyrics to the song are pretty simple. Though the words are not complicated, they carry a clear message– rebelling against “Big Brother,” or “The Machine” as it is referred to in this song. The vocalist sings about not wanting to be monitored by a higher power. The song ends is typical “jam band” fashion– with a long instrumental outro. The 80’s vibe and forceful message are great parts to this song, which makes everything about it is enjoyable.
egokiller is a band with talent that has the ability to produce memorable songs that stick in your head. Talk to the Machines proves that great instrumentation, simple yet effective lyrics, and a fun 80’s nostalgic vibe create a perfect Pop confection. Keep up the good work egokiller!
