About Machine

 

Machine is the first look at Eva X's upcoming album "I Dream of a Reality". Eva X has the following to say about the song annd its story:

 

"I have a complicated relationship with my body. I do love it, but sometimes I wish it was different. Less fat. Bigger lips. Straighter nose. 

 

I wrote Machine in a vulnerable spot, when I'd have given anything to feel beautiful like other women on social media. Chasing that aesthetic with injections and makeup was powerful, but also scary- I could create the face and body I wanted, but what would happen when it wore off? 

 

I took all of these tangled feelings and poured them into Machine. When I brought the demo to my coproducers, Shane and Adam immediately jumped on it, bringing it to life with a frenetic energy that captured perfectly how alluring and isolating that illusion can be.

 

In the music video, I wanted to explore what being beautiful in the alternative community looks and feels like, and how far we go for aesthetics. I taught myself choreography to capture the movement I wanted. Erik and I designed a video that captured both the sexiness I wanted and the reality of cutting and injecting ourselves for it."
