Swedish pop not to be kept a dirty little secret. 2 Stockholm based producers, 2 minds tired of the industries complications, a whole host of skills and 1 simple joint desire to release good music – the product? Tape Machines.

After deciding that the music industry was lacking the space for individual artists to explore their vibes without the complexity of large-scale collaborations, the passionate pair decided to cut the middleman and create a space for artists to meet them and make music both easily and naturally.

The dream-team are set to release their first piece of work into the pop stratosphere in the form of single ‘Dirty Linen Sheets’. Through pure Swedish pop ft. isolated synths, dance beats and soaring vocals, the single explores the relationship between mental and physical closeness, an interesting angle to explore via music - setting Tape Machines aside from the rest. They say “Dirty Linen Sheets is about that one nighter that suddenly turned into something more. You wake up in a bed, a new reality you never saw coming”. The passionate-for-pop producers agreeing once again that music should be a means of exploration - “music seems to be the only sane thing in this world”.

Cue ‘Dirty Linen Sheets’. With a pop dance beat so solid Zara Larson would double take and synth hooks evidently mastered, we’re almost ready to take to the sheets, almost. Wanting to be kept anonymous - allowing the lyrics to speak for themselves, the vocals can only be described as what you’d imagine the product of Tove Lo and Kehlani bumping into each other at XOYO to be. Needless to say, it’s nice.
