Spirit In The Room released their newest EP in August of 2022 titled, Flamingo. The band shot a live session for the song I Used To Be A Machine, while at Center Staging in Burbank. The song happens to be vocalist, guitarist, synth, and bassist, Dennis Sanders favorite song from the EP. The song is about being at war with your shadow self.
“Flamingo documents my journey through a period of fear, paranoia, isolation and uncertainty. I had quite a difficult time finding the motivation to continue doing this through all of that, but I forced myself to pick up my instruments and once I got out of my own way, the ideas and inspiration came flowing through me like a river of hot piss.”
“I’ve realized I never really had a home,” he observes. “There are five songs I’ve written about that. Then there are some paranoia vibes until it explodes because you’re so emotional you can’t control your reaction. The end of the EP resembles becoming the new person you are, which is not necessarily a good thing.”
