Regarding the new single, the band says: “A song that commiserates in tough times. Bad Luck is there with a hug, a tall boy, and a little reminder to keep going.”

Answering Machine is a Rock & Roll band out of Brooklyn, NY. Their influences range everywhere from The Replacements, The Ramones, Blondie, The Ronettes, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, and Bruce Springsteen to Jenny Lewis, Against Me, and plenty in between.

Samantha (vocals) and JD (guitar/vocals), two public school teachers in Brooklyn, started the band back in 2016. Close friends quickly filled the gaps with Jackson on guitar, Louis on drums, and Craig on bass. Craig and Louis played in a few popular local Brooklyn bands (Cold Wrecks, Ellen and The Degenerates). Jackson has been playing in bands with JD since childhood.

The band released their first (self-titled) EP right away in 2017, a second (Color TV) in 2018, and put out their new single “Bad Luck” in 2019. They’ve played at FEST down in Gainesville for the past two years, Pouzza in Montreal this past year, and are regulars throughout the venues in New York.

Answering Machine has just recorded their debut LP, also titled “Bad Luck.” Writing and recording this album allowed their influences to blend and the band to find the sound they’ve been developing over the past few years. “Bad Luck” will be released this April on Wiretap Records.
