The Orchid Machine is a hard rock band from Freiburg, Germany. The band has just released their debut album, Answers to Questions Never Asked. And in conceptualizing the theme for the album, the band adopts unstructured rhythms, unconventional rhythms and unexpected melody design. Their sound falls smack dab in the middle of the progressive-experimental-hard rock spectrum. They achieve incredibly ambitious feats of transition and sonic transcendence effortlessly. Taken from this collection is the track “A Little Thing” which aptly conveys the appeal of The Orchid Machine. Listeners of Karnivool and Dead Letter Circus are sure to enjoy the expert rock parlances of this band. 

The track opens with an addictive rhythm that is sharp with riff breaks and electric wires of guitar shreds. Which is amplified  by metallic growls and ghostly vocal cloaks. A drastic shift lands us in a mellow middle eastern soundscape. Its soft valleys of melody bring a psychedelic dimension to the tearing soundscape. Alternating and ultimately fusing these two frames, the song blossoms into a balancing act that feeds the mind. 

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
