It is hard to believe that it has been three whole years since I reviewed the self-titled EP from Edinburgh indie band Motion. In the years since they have gigged extensively, sharing a bill with bands such as Neon Waltz, Vistas and Rascalton.
After taking a short break the band have relaunched themselves under a new name, Silkwave. Their first single under their new moniker, Fingers on the Key, was released last month.
Coming in at just under three minutes it is a solid reintroduction to the group’s talents. This band are not afraid to wear their influences on their sleeves and here we have elements of The Vaccines mixed in with touches of The Stone Roses. It makes for an enticing mix and is a song that screams out to be heard live. Let’s all hope that is sooner rather than later.
You can hear Fingers on the Key here.
