The Vending Machine Heart e.p.

The Vending Machine Heart

Described as two parts Elliot Smith to one part Simon & Garfunkel.

The Vending Machine Heart is Jason Applin and Stuart Wills.

They formed The Vending Machine Heart and started writing acoustic based songs after finding that they had a common admiration for many of the same songwriters.

Disillusioned with the loud guitars and drums tradition they originated from, they set about exploring the writing and recording process with a stripped down approach. Allowing lyrical content and melody to replace posturing and power chords has resulted in a sound that is beautiful, sparse and beguiling in equal measures.

The Vending Machine Heart's music has been described as two parts Elliot Smith to one part Simon & Garfunkel.
