about

The Menace Of Mechanical Music is the expansive, genre-lurching debut album from TEAM PICTURE, released on 12th June 2020 via Clue Records. Inspired by an early 20th century essay under the same name by American marching band leader John Philip Sousa, TEAM PICTURE dissect the automation of creativity.
Themes centre around the value of creative identity in an automated age, the increasingly disposable nature of art and where that leaves its creators. At twelve songs split into a three-part suite; The Menace of Mechanical Music is emphatically maximalist.
Sousa’s vision was of a society that had deferred to automation, where babies were rocked to sleep by wheels and pulleys, and people no longer played piano with their own hands. Well over 100 years later and on the precipice of a technological shift never seen before, The Menace of Mechanical Music is the most human response that TEAM PICTURE could have given.

""...their songs are so intoxicating. A fluid, elegant record + an escapist gem" 9/10 Loud & Quiet
"Team Picture's ambition and talent for offbeat art pop continues to make them a facinating prospect" 4/5 NARC
“...reaches to the stars and up the back of your spine” The Line Of Best Fit
“Lo-fi, lush and expansive” DORK
“Feels like it could batter its way through brickwork” DIY
"...a glorious spectacle, filled with incredible depth and diversity. It is like visiting the Tate Modern, where every art piece is striking yet different" Revue
"An innovative piece of art, the diverging styles never jar or appear coerced" 4/5 Yorkshire Evening Post
"Top 100 for 2019" NME
