MORE ON CRASH THE DAY

In the traditions of post-punk and dream pop, Motes‘ guitars are rhythmic and noisy, and their melodies are hushed and frail. The group is decidedly Midwestern, though, in their exploration of emotion through imagery and exposition. Their poetry has a kind of existential clarity; and sometimes, through layers and modulation, Motes get messy—but never miss the mark.

On Crash The Day, the trio have kept the spirit of their debut full-length Keep It In The Dark intact (helped by the band returning to Earth Analog studios in Tolono, IL with engineer Colin Althaus at the helm), but that bold and wispy spirit has been both nurtured and challenged to become a different version of itself. There are moments when growth shows itself in the concise tightness of the arrangements, and others in the experimental expanse of the soundscapes. Motes went for the walls and landed one in the stars.

Motes is:

Matt Cohn (drums)
Elizabeth Majerus (bass, guitar, and vocals)
Matt Mitchell (guitar, bass, and vocals)
