I Speak Machine have released the first music video, Shame, from their upcoming album, Zombies 1985, which the band describes as a “sinister, synth-centric love letter” to 1980’s horror.
I Speak Machine are vocalist and synthesist Tara Busch and filmmaker Maf Lewis. Together they make soundtracks and horror/sci-fi films, creating a “live score film,” where the film is screened only with the music performed live by Tara.
I Speak Machine teamed up with former collaborator, Benge (from Wrangler/John Foxx & The Maths), to work on Zombies 1985.
The movie was written and directed by Lewis, starred Gary Numan’s the three daughters as zombies, and was screened with the live score performed by Tara Busch during a 21-date tour with Numan.
The record was also mixed at Benge’s Memetune studios using solely 1985-era mixers, effects and processing.
I Speak Machine’s upcoming Zombies 1985 album will be released in early September, and can be pre-ordered from Lex Records. For more information on upcoming projects and performances, check out the I Speak Machine website or their Facebook page.
