The Answering Machine release their new single ‘Obviously Cold’ on the 18th May 2009. It precedes their debut album, ‘Another City, Another Sorry’, on the 1st June, both through Heist or Hit Records.
Following quickly in the success of recent single ‘Cliffer’, which saw The Answering Machine become the favourite new British band of choice across the UK radio airwaves and amongst the hardcore blogging fraternity, Manchester citygazers The Answering Machine unleash another indie dancefloor anthem in waiting, ‘Obviously Cold’.
The band have also recently been stealing shows across the country on tour with Ra Ra Riot and Casiokids with their hugely uplifting, indie-pop songs to become one of the most talked about young acts today.
The forthcoming album plots a path from the exuberant party lifestyle into the dawn of youthful realisation, those steps in-between and ultimately what comes next. If music’s revered social commentators are typically southern based, The Answering Machine are taking the North by the scruff of the neck, and presenting it with an assured understanding.
The Answering Machine are: Martin Colclough – Vocals, guitar, Pat Fogarty – Vocals, guitar, Gemma Evans – Vocals, bass and Ben Perry – Drums
