The Motive

Bio~ 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 (capacity 150+) as well as selling out "Ram Jam Records" in a hometown return (capacity 100+) 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. Recent successes include the band being aired on BBC introducing- the south twice in the last 6 months, accumulating over 300,000 streams on Spotify, recently confirmed a gig at the Half Moon in Putney. We have been privileged to have worked on our newest single, released in September 2019 “Talking Underwater” (linked in our DM’s on Instagram) with Kerion Pepper Ex prodigy live drummer, and the band have recently been accepted into the AWAL community (an independent record label for self-sufficient musicians).
