Speaking on the creative process of the single, AKA George explains to Eat This Music how he “decided to work in the lounge instead of the studio for a change of scenery.” Adding how he “set up a keyboard and found a really tame synth sound and put a massive distortion on it, which I loved. So the music came from that.”
“The song had been bouncing around in my head for about a week so it almost wrote itself, it took about twenty minutes.”
Speaking on his earlier release [Stone Cold Classic], AKA George explains how he believes “Manic Machine felt like it was a good follow on from Stone Cold Classic.” Adding ow “It had some of those rock elements that Stone Cold Classic has but it’s a bit more futuristic and looking forwards towards the songs I have planned for release in the future.”
