The last time we heard from New Zealand band Motocade in April of last year, they had a new video for an new record. Well, I must have had it wrong, because according to their newest e-mail to me, they are only now just releasing their debut LP ‘Tightrope Highway’. ‘Soap Opera’ doesn’t seem to be on the newest record, so perhaps it was on an EP?
Check out ‘Tightrope Highway’.
Either way, I’m excited to revisit this band, as everything I’ve heard from them has fell on good ears here. Hearing influences from the sounds of bands like Bloc Party and TV On The Radio, this new material seems to stretch a little farther from the previous, showing songwriting growth and a band really hitting their stride.
All the way to the US that is. They’re playing CMJ next month as their first trip to North America. I’ve asked them to give me a heads up when they make it further north. Check their myspace for more details.
and the other video is ‘Oldest Trick In The Book’.
Consistently great videos from this band.
