“Spiritual Machinery is a symbol of a generation that was and is, and that which is about to come.” – Warlock Asylum International News
Spiritual Machinery is not like any other act. There are no strict rules on who can join the project, no hold on musicians or producers to stay completely faithful to the act. There is instead an understanding on a very important aspect of music making: collaboration. This is an inherent understanding that comes with Spiritual Machinery, that making music with others is an eye opening experience, that hearing the thoughts and feelings from fellow musicians is what helps move any project along fluently.
Formed by Hakan Sunar , Spiritual Machinery is a band that shows the impact of inspiration. The 80s was a decade of color and vibrant music, a decade with songs that screamed “get up and dance”. This is reflected in Sunar’s creations: it is obvious where he comes from and what affected him.
The 80s has seen a surprising resurgence in media, with film and television having several throwbacks to the decade of big hair and even bigger shoulder pads – but where is the music? Where are the children from the 80s, all grown up and ready to show the world what they were surrounded with all those years go? The answer can be found with Spiritual Machinery. They use drum machines, synthesizers, and electronic keyboards to take you back in time. Their music is energetic but not overwhelming, and is instead catchy and pop like, a disco track you’d hear in any 80s flick. It’s hard not to tap your foot when you’re listening to a track by Spiritual MachineryT With songs like Lady of Night and The Greedy Man instantly grabbing you. Their introductions firm in what they want audiences to see: well produced songs with catchy beats and a powerful voice. The vocals featured in Spiritual Machinery’s songs are interesting. There is no generic voice here, no common pop vocals. The voice here is instead unique and in its own world. It keeps you intrigued and on your toes, eyes wide open as you listen to the interesting pronunciations and expressions of words.
All in all, Sunar has come a long way in what originally began as a solo project. He has expanded far, collaborating with artists who bring interesting skills and ideas to the team. Sunar began his project in 2017 and in only a year has released several songs that have brought him and his team success, proving that the 80s has yet to die, and that Spiritual Machinery are only at the beginning of their journey of success and popularity.
