Another new music release to start the week. And today, it is all about UK indie-rock band, The Motive. Their Second release, and first official single, of the year; the band are back with brand new single, Rush, which they released at the end of last month. This latest single follows up their first release of the year; an acoustic version of Talking Underwater, their last single of 2019.
With a different vibe than the song namemay suggest; Rush definitely takes on a more laid-back, easy listening sound, as opposed to anything too heavy or intense. An upbeat indie-rock track, reminiscent of Kings of Leon; the relaxed melody is exactly what we need while currently stuck inside. Definitely a perfect summer song, this will make a great edition to any summer playlist; and the track features some incredible guitar riffs and relatable lyrics that will have you listening to it on repeat.
In addition to the official single, last week the band also posted an extra special quarantine edition of the track on YouTube, featuring some relatable quarantine visuals. A mellow and stripped back acoustic version of the single, which really allow Max’ stunning vocals to take centre stage; we see band members Joe and Max perform this chilled acoustic version of Rush live from quarantine.
Talking about the single, the band said that they “believe it’s [their] best work yet but to stay tuned because [they] have many more tunes in the pipeline waiting to be released”. So with the promise of some more incredible music on the way; make sure you check them out and follow them on all their socials (@_themotive) , so you can keep up to date with all their latest news and upcoming music releases.
