At Sea released their full-length debut, A New Machine this week via Soap Media/CEN/RED.  The album is featured over at RDIOin the NEW MUSIC TUESDAY PLAYLIST and you can listen to A New Machine in full at RDIO at

A New Machine is melodic; equal parts moody electronics and big guitars, with lyrics both personal and quietly political. The music conjures up everyone from the likes of Jeff Buckley and Incubus to Doves and Death Cab for Cutie, without really sounding like any of them.  Highlighted as a NEW & NOTEWORTHY release at iTunes, you can purchase A New Machine here.

"Everything you want in alternative pop. It’s catchy, but it doesn’t sound artificially built for radio. It’s guitar driven, but there’s enough electronic to make it sound modern and fresh.”
- Magnet Magazine

They make dreamy sounds for dreamers.”
- Insomnia Radio

- Record-Journal

“The Brooklyn trio has culminated music that is pure and emotional with melodies that are stripped down and beautiful.”
- Eat Sleep Breathe Music

Lyrically, the songs on A New Machine feature an apocalyptic undertone, inspired by the recent spate of natural disasters, the Occupy Wall Street movement and the continued whitewashing of New York’s culture. It’s songwriter Jason Brody’s attempt to inject a little substance into the modern musical climate. “Now there's so much music out there and it’s so easy to get to,” he says. “But it’s also easy to forget that any music we make and listen to was inspired by music that was made from a more political and reactionary point of view. There was an intent behind it all that’s no longer there.”

In Jason’s own words: “At the end of the day I’ve realized that it’s all about writing a great song. Strip away all the fashion, all the production, all the other elements that go with the experience of music, and it really comes down to that. That’s what gets people, what touches them. That’s where I want to be and what I want to do.”
