Bittersweet Machines, a one-man project by Matt Mocharnuk, delivers deft, impactful recordings that could nestle quite well on radio playlists with the likes of Imagine Dragons and Bastille. The big synth beat of “Fire In The City” takes the listener on a melancholy, technicolor trip with deft dynamics that swell into a satisfying, all-out finale. “...Bee Stung Lips” has predictable lyrics but its “mystery girl” scenario could make for a vivid video. The hooky “Haunting Me” is a strong single, one that rides the artist’s sad, sympathetic tenor to a gushing climax that’s buttoned up by a calming piano outro. Bittersweet Machines hums at a high level, the production allowing every word and chord to connect. Labels and film/TV folks should take heed.
