When Saints Go Machine

We haven’t even locked our bikes when we hear the first beats of „Parix“ coming from the backyard of a non-descript, slightly run-down brick building in Nørrebro. The Copenhagen-based When Saints Go Machine have their rehearsal room back there and are obviously already getting warm for the session. It’s not the first time our paths cross, two years back we put the four guys in a Viennese shop window for a take of their song Fail Forever. This time the set-up is way more complex and it takes a while until everything works how it should. Yet when the synthesizer-sounds of „Parix“ set in, the dimly-lit rehearsal room turns out to be the perfect place for this atmospheric session. Singer Nikolaj’s echoey, dream-like vocals reverberate from the walls and create an amazing live experience in their studio. The second song „Kelly“ – also from their highly acclaimed album „Konkylie“ – leaves no doubt why this band is on the way up – and not only in Denmark.
