Man Made are Nile, Callum and Scott, a Manchester based trio who, with a combination of their ultra talented members, quality tracks and now the management team behind Jake Bugg, look set to take over the world.
What started as a solo project for Nile has progressively built up to this exciting threesome when he added Scott on drums and later Callum on Bass.
Ok, so sure super cool frontman Nile is the son of Manchester legend Johnny Marr but that matters not here and it can be totally forgotten about. Man Made are gonna be big on merit not association. Their talent alone is what is going to carry them to the heady heights of stardom and is enough for them to escape any shadows that his dads name may cause to fall over them.
Man made seems to be an apt name for the lads and their project as everything has a very handcrafted feel to it. Songs are recorded in bedrooms and merchandise t shirts are made at home. It works beautifully, adding a somewhat more personal touch to proceedings that is sadly hard to find in todays music scene.
TV Broke My Brain is their new single and it’s a beauty of a track with a captivating video to match. The track is a scuzzy and bass heavy monster of a track which at just 02:25 flies by, doing enough whet the appetite and leave you wanting more. With its jangly guitar, rhythmic drums and atmospheric vocals to add to the rumbling bassline, TV Broke My Brain showcases the band greatly but also only scratches the surface of what they have to offer.
Live is where Man Made are at their comfiest. Having had support slots with bands like The Lemonheads and Badly Drawn Boy as well as touring relentlessly in headline slots both as a band and Nile as a solo artist they have crafted an enthralling live show. This summer they tore up a series of festivals including an immensely well received set on the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading and Leeds. They are about to embark on a tour that sees them perform all across the North, Midlands and Scotland and I urge every single one of you to get to a show, it’s gonna be a riot.

Man Made are a band that I am super excited about and I have no doubt that they are set for a huge future because of their talent and the prestigious new management. Expect greatness.
