THE MOTION BELOW
RELEASE SOARING SINGLE “DEAD ENDS”
AS THE FIRST IN A TWO-PART SERIES
The Motion Below are back with a vengeance with their brand new single “Dead Ends”, the first of a two-part story about a man lost within himself. The Motion Below have given fans a few weeks to get acquainted with their first release of 2020 before they unleash it in a live setting at Summer Shutdown alongside Suspyria, Druid and Seddon on February 29!
“Dead Ends” was produced, mixed and mastered at The Loud Noise Estate (Polaris, BLKLST,Dealer) and contrary to the content of the lyrics, the song is upbeat and combines a fragile tone that guides the track like a light in the dark through the heavy hitting backbone that The Motion Below master. The four-piece have garnered high praise from triple j hosts for contrasting soaring cleans with fearsome heavies and “Dead Ends” flaunts this style to the absolute best of the bands abilities.
Martin Wood Imagery directed and produced the music video that narrates the story of the protagonist struggling to free himself from the chains of addiction, wondering how he found himself sinking into a bleak existence and ultimately resigning himself to his fate and slipping into madness.
To celebrate their brand new single, The Motion Below will take to the stage on Saturday February 29 to headline a one-off Summer Shutdown show at Wrangler Studios accompanied by Suspyria, Druid and Seddon. Tickets available now at Oztix!
In 2018, Melbourne’s The Motion Below stepped into the studio with the aim of creating something unique, and in turn brought their EP ‘Cronus Complex’ to the table – a significant step in the right direction for the boys with a more refined take on the modern day post-hardcore style. “State Of Decay” was the first to be welcomed into the world last year and was immediately added to Australia’s own Homegrown + Heavy Spotify playlist, Apple Music‘s The Riff and Fresh Blood,built the foundation of interest with solid reviews from triple j and received media love nationwide.
“Figureheads” followed suit and came as the second cut from ‘Cronus Complex’, premiering on The Racket with adds to a couple more Apple Music playlists and another immediate add to Homegrown + Heavy, climbing the ranks until they held the cover image for a couple of weeks and now comfortably sit at 80,000 streams. The Motion Below show no sign of slowing down any time soon and are already waiting in the wings with their next offering, stay tuned!
“Dead Ends” is available to stream and purchase at all good online outlets and streaming platforms!
