“Sentience Machine are waking up the electric sheep with a full force dream-weapon.”
Steve Savale, Asian Dub Foundation
As an invisible enemy confronts our humanity and authoritarian leaders impose tactics for expanding the surveillance state, Sentience Machine are rising from the embers of the global pandemic, ready to unleash an explosion of energy with the powerful vibrations of their alternative rock sounds. The band’s rebellious and anarchic spirit has been captured in their gritty debut single ‘Black Mirror’, reflecting on this Orwellian oppression and how the violation of our privacy and data is serving a capitalist system intent on crushing our welfare state. A music revolution is brewing… Sentience Machine is fronted by UK psychedelic trance DJ and singer Psibindi (aka Rena), guitarist and producer Edward Abela, drummer Jamie Steenbergen, bassist Stephen Clift and guitarist Ben Turner.
“Rena sounds like the deviant android that knows there’s a humanity out there somewhere and she’s gonna fight to get it. The sound is stark and tight, guitars spewing glitched out corrupted data like a high speed King Crimson without the prog, and early Radiohead without the whine.”
Steve Savale – Asian Dub Foundation
“Black Mirror is beautifully delivered. With conscious lyrics and a hypnotic ambient vocal tone. Laced with electronic sounds, captivated by intense rock guitar. The song captures your imagination and forces you to listen through the lens of the new world. Love it!”
Charlotte Kelly – Soul II Soul
