Shock Machine is the first solo project from Mercury Prize winning, BRIT Award and Ivor Novello nominated songwriter James Righton, who previously fronted the genre-defining group, Klaxons.

‘Shock Machine’, the beautiful, eponymous introduction to this new project, was recorded in a cabin in the south of France with the help of producer James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Florence + The Machine, Haim) and mixed in Atlanta by Ben H Allen (Gnarls Barkley, Animal Collective, Deerhunter).

It’s the first track from Shock Machine’s forthcoming debut ‘Open Up The Sky’ EP, a collection of timeless pop music that embraces inspiration from decades of off-kilter greats – from Todd Rundgren and Dennis Wilson, to early Paul McCartney – evolving influences into one of 2016’s most vital debut releases.
