The Machine is the stunning debut single from Fiona Bevan, released 10th March and available from iTunes and other digital stores. Written by Bevan – who has already tasted success as a chart-topping songwriter for One Direction – The Machine’s hypnotic rhythm and clanging percussion contrast vividly with it’s spritely vocal and the frisky, looped acoustic guitar. The almost conversational, Sondheim-esque shift sees Bevan urging herself – and her listeners – to take control.
“The Machine came from being angry and frustrated about the state of the world and from my feelings of powerlessness to do anything about it,” she says. “Within the song, there’s a shift – that’s about breaking out and finding how you can have power in your own life, in everything you do.”
Fiona’s debut album ‘Talk To Strangers’ is available now from Propermusic.com, Amazon.co.uk and iTunes
