The Motion Poets, Scotland On Sunday, 7 May 2017
THE MOTION POETS Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Usually when we hear that a band has formed on a music course, it brings to mind jazz-funk noodlers or formulaic Glee-like horrors. Fortunately, The Motion Poets, four students at an Edinburgh Napier University – are the exception that proves the rule.
Professing a shared penchant for gig-going, discount beer-drinking and decorating their shared Edinburgh flat with street furniture, they apply their musical abilities to honing well-crafted rock, picking the good bits from the heavy guitars of the seventies, along with eighties grunge, nineties Britpop and noughties indies.
Their new single, One Too Many released on Friday, demonstrates they are certainly moving in the right direction. Released on Friday, listen here: http://bit.ly/2TMPUTR
