machineheart wrote your new favorite breakup song

“best thing”

by jenny lee

If a good, refreshing breakup song is what you need, Los Angeles-based, five-piece machineheart has you covered. Their new song, “Best Thing,” is exactly the kind of empowering track to blast when you know your ex lost out. The song is loud and infectious with booming percussion propelling it forward. The synths are lively, and singer Stevie Scott adds the sass to the song with her powerful vocals. The music effortlessly matches the lyrics and the message, which is that “I’m the best thing that you’ll never have.”

“When we started writing the song, it immediately came from a place of confidence and empowerment. It’s the retrospective view of a bad relationship,” Scott said on their inspiration for the song. “Who hasn’t been burned and wished they could say exactly that: “I’m the best thing that you’ll never have.” I think everyone has that one person they can sing this song to.”

“Best Thing” will be part of machineheart’s upcoming EP, In Your Dreams, to be released on July 31. And catch them as they cross the country openning for Smallpool this fall.
