about

One year after the successful launch of their self-titled debut, Mechanimal return with a 7inch single that prepares the ground for their second album.

Both tracks were recorded in the summer of 2013 in the studio of Mechanimal in Kessariani, Athens and express experiences that while personal they reach a large part of people’s everyday life. "Obscure" speaks about all those well-hidden information running through our veins, some of them unconsciously, while "The Last Summer" is a melancholy ballad that describes the end of a false era when one realizes that perhaps we are nothing more than the memory of a wounded machine.

The single was mastered by Coti K. The cover artwork comes from visual material of the band’s visual artist, Aggeliki Vrettou. The video for the track "Obscure" was directed by Yannis Karabelas, a member of the creative team Les Yper Yper.

Available on 7inch vinyl and digital single from Inner Ear.

Track Name: Obscure
I'm a container, inside a beautiful body
The medium pore carrying on with your thoughts
A celebrity divorce or a crisis experience
Environmental disaster, the death of hope.

I am the needle that feeds in your system
Into my veins, where everything flows
I am the endless din of your media
A tragic trivial that will never exist.

I'm a container, inside a beautiful body
The medium pore carrying on with your thoughts
So I'm very happy when you are close
Or when I reach your thoughts of mainstream porn.

Yeah, I'm very happy when I can bite your words
And then I try to eat you, feeding my soul
Cause I'm a container inside a beautiful body
Carrying on with your nightmares when all heaven is lost.

Obscure information runs through your veins
Giving you hard-ons, digesting your pain

I'm a container, inside a beautiful body
Track Name: The Last Summer
Like the deep heat of endless days
We may relate to the sun
Like falling stars on endless nights
Once we were found / now we are lost
Now we are safe
Now we are sound
Now that we found sound we are lost
Sometimes in memories
Sometimes in dreams
Sometimes in passing confusion

Like handcuffed lovers
We're heartland bound / in circular fever
Dragging seasons around
Dragging seasons around

With all these memories
With all these dreams
We're just a passing confusion

Now one last summer
Comes to father all fears
With poems and photographs
Of children like us
We played with memories
We played with dreams
We played with passing confusions
And we can hear the screams
From our closets
We are a hidden machine.

Bits and bytes
Screws and bolts
We're just a broken down machine.
