On the title track of I Am a War Machine, SONTALK captures mental unraveling with a precision that’s both brutal and beautiful. In lyrics both stark and poetic, I Am a War Machine follows that protagonist on a journey toward confronting fear and pain and failure, while bravely exploring the rift between who we desire to be and “the person we discover we actually are.” Produced by Jeremy Lutito and recorded in two breakneck sessions at Nashville’s Big Light Studio, I Am a War Machine finds SONTALK and his fellow musicians drawing from a vast palette of sounds—distorted synth lines, fractured beats, warped slide guitar—and creating a graceful dissonance perfectly suited to such volatile emotional terrain.
