Pioneering a new blend of psychedelic pop with sumptuous orchestrations, the band are set to release their first single Toast the Toaster in the UK on the 22nd of March 2010.

The classically trained brothers were born in Greece, raised in Portugal and speak English as a mother tongue, making them a truly multinational outfit. They have been writing and playing music together for more than half of their lives taking musical journeys through ska, progressive rock and punk to find their own vibe, which they describe as 'a new blend of psychedelic pop'. Through this, coupled with several band names and personnel changes down the line, they have found their ideal line-up and are now ready to bring No Machine to the world.

The concept behind the band was their need to sound 100% real, to relate to the listener/ audience. It's about making a human connection, no use of drum programming and drum machines, all instruments played live by talented musicians.

Making that emotional connection is also the concept behind the boys' debut album, which, promises to be a stirring affair, as exemplified by their edgy first single, Toast the Toaster. They explain the song as "about losing yourself for a bit".

The track was recorded at Mayfair studios (Radiohead's 'OK Computer', Blur's 1997 album, 'Blur') and is a quality pop song, which takes you on an uplifting journey with the singer's authentic unique voice and the impressive brass and orchestration.

The string arrangements were done by David Campbell (Beck's Dad) in LA. Furthermore the track was mixed by mixer Cenzo Townshend who is responsible for mixing the likes of Snow Patrol, Franz Ferdinand and Florence and The Machine.

The band already have dozens more tracks under their belts, just waiting to be recorded, and are set to embark on a UK tour in the new year, dates to be confirmed. And unlike other pop siblings, famous for high profile quibbling and spats, these two guys are happy to let their music do all the talking: "Sure we get pissed off at each other sometimes, but we're really positive when we make our music. We just seem to think along the same lines".

Toast the Toaster is set for release on 22nd March 2010.
