Drawing influences from across the musical spectrum, ranging from Oasis to Frank Ocean, The Motive craft tightly written songs from a studio in South West London. Having released five singles in 2018, the band's eclectic sound is quickly gaining momentum among local fans and worldwide. Alongside their recorded output, the band put on electric, anticipated live shows, frequently selling out Richmond's "The Basement Door" club in a number of headline gigs. The Motive are synonymous with always working on new ideas, constantly writing and recording. The band are very excited to release new music and the next few months are set to be groundbreaking.
It is an age-old question: why do pigeons constantly bob their heads back and forth? Some say it's for vision, others an adaptation to avoid predators. The truth? They are constantly getting down to the slick, upbeat grooves of their slim brothers and sisters.
As the adage goes, the slimmer the pigeon the funkier the groove, the slimmer the pigeon the more that you'll move. These pigeons are as slim as they come. So, expect a high energy blend of funk, disco, soul and 80's groove that'll leave you with a head bob fit for Trafalgar.
