Elegant Machinery’s frontman Robert Enforsen is recording a solo album or as he puts it when we contacted him: “I’m slowly writing a solo album.”
Side-Line got in touch with Enforsen to find out a bit more: “With the current working tempo it’ll take some time to compose and record it all, so I’m scheduling to release it sometime next year.” As for the sound, he had this to say: “I’m doing an electronic album, but I’m striving to get the production updated. Then still, it (editor’s note: the sound of Elegant machinery) will of course be hard to wash away completely, since I’m the voice of Elegant Machinery (smiles).”
But before that you’ll be able to see the Elegant Machinery frontman live at work (and let’s hope you will also get to hear some of the Hype material). Here are the gigs confirmed so far with more being planned.
- September 11th – Open Air Festival in Hoyerswerda, Germany together with Auto Auto
- September 12th – Leipzig, Germany with Auto Auto
- November 28th – UltraPop Festival in Barcelona, Spain together with OBK, De/Vision and Mesh
