THE LISTENING BOOTH | THE NEW ROCK N ROLL : BITTERSWEET MACHINES – “THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY”

Regular visitors will know that we hold Bittersweet Machines (aka Matt Mocharnuk) in the highest esteem.

Matt’s knack at emulating and channeling 80s new wave anthems into singularly distinctive modern rock gems is staggering.

The fact that he has operated under the radar is once again indicative of the tone deafness of modern rock machinations.

Nonetheless, that should not deter you – faithful true blue music lover – from appreciating great work when you are confronted with it!

The new single, “The One That Got Away”, finds Matt veering slightly into 90s rock with a track that riffs on Oasis type Britpop, but with more pop smarts and emotional resonance that the Gallanghers are able to muster.

The synths are kept to the margins with the power of Matt’s voice, the guitars and the strings driving the emotions home. Suffice to say, we are in love as usual.

Find out why.
