MOTORAMA TO RELEASE ‘POVERTY’ ON MARCH 10, 2015
Russias Motorama will release their third album, Poverty on March 10 via eccentric French label Talitres. Uncannily, for a band from a southern port near the Ukraine border, Motorama resemble a bunch of New Yorkers emulating the sound of 80s Manchester, says the BBC. It would be preposterous if the result didnt sound so sublime.
Prior to their second full-length, Calendar (2012), Motorama was a wonderfully kept secret. From the port city of Rostov-on-Don, Southern Russia, the band was producing a Manchester-inspired cold wave of icy and hypnotic post-punk. Icy but not frozen, hypnotic but awake. Before long, their compositions improved in clarity, lyricism and assurance: the prominent rock of their first recordings now opening its doors to romantic and melodic pop.

Not to mention, that’s the perfect hour for this kind of song.”
