Track Of The Day: Eureka Machines
Today’s Track Of The Day comes to you from Eureka Machines…
When a band describes one of its influences as “the theme tune to Ronnie Corbett’s 80s sitcom ‘Sorry’”, you know that you’ve got a group that are going to be a lot of fun, and probably not take themselves too seriously. And looking at their line-up confirms this – you’re confronted with names such as Chris Catalyst, Davros, Pete Pseudonym and Wayne Insane.
What Eureka Machines do is make a glorious cacophony of power pop noise that distills the best bits of Jellyfish with a dash of early Manics and even tosses in a smidge of Beach Boys chorus catchiness.
Their debut album scored a 7 out of 10 when Classic Rock reviewed it last October, calling the Leeds band out on their “brilliant vocal harmonies and power pop stomp”. And even if we say so ourselves, we were bang on. As you can hear for yourself by downloading Do Or Die , today’s Track Of The Day which is the title track from said debut.
