Technicolor Dream Machine
Sunderland based pop scientists The Bubble Project play a subtle blend of surf rock, electro pop and pure noise, delivered with a splash of punk attitude. An amalgam of genres, styles and ideas, mutated together to create almost fable like tales of love and hope featuring beautiful female scientists and love born in outer space, along side a colourful cast of characters including Mr X, Magic Dan and VIXILLIAN CLAUF. Referred to as 'retro futurists' due to their lo-fi, noisy, raw and under produced (sometimes mono) recordings, yet embracing technology in an abundance of samples, synths and electronic gadgets intended for children. Mixing elements of garage surf, 80's stadium rock, 'Boces' era Mercury Rev noise pop and the plastic sounds of The Buggles, The Bubble Project have created an album that would act as the perfect soundtrack to the comics of American artist James Kochalka or Ed Woods version of The Wizard of Oz. The Bubbles philosophy is simple; turn it up and distort it, but make sure it has melody.
