A little bit of Kraftwerk and a touch of Pink Floyd and other 70s and 80s influences.

Inspired by a trip I once made on State Route 375, the Extraterrestrial Highway, in a gleaming machine to Rachel, Nevada, where the rumoured black machines of men and beyond are to be found in Area 51. What mechanical rhythms would accompany them? A moment, under the spirally starlight of the Milky Way and next to a restricted area sign authorising deadly force that became the genesis of Hymns for Machines.

“Combining retro with a very modern sensibility, the quirky electronica of Trinity Ward is showcased in a brand new collection, 'Hymns For Machines' which in spite of the title is possibly the most emotional and even subtly melancholic offering thus far.. and of course we will play-listing tracks ALL over the NBTMusicRadio's 24 hour stream."
