To describe beautiful mechanica's music, one need look no further than the name. Fusing synthesis and electronica with beauty and dark romanticism, the desire to inspire and effect emotion is the impetus for the band.
beautiful mechanica are resolute in being unaffected by the sounds and styles of any given time - be it now or the past. Whilst those who love the electronica of new wave and the new romantics will find much to feel at home with, the songs are as contemporary as they revivalist - the ambition being only that each is as unique and affecting as possible.
beautiful mechanica are:
graham sampson (vocal/programming/keys/guitar)
van naarden (guitars)
