LIKE A MOTORCYCLE
“Like A Motorcycles music is a heady mash of squalling guitars, bass lines that stick to your ribs and tight, soulful drumming, with lyrics about attraction, headfuckery and all that other stuff that drives you to drink. They’re clever but not glib, scrappy but not hardened, and seem to know how to confront crimes of the heart without yielding to them.” – Alison Lang THE COAST
With a view to kicking the hell out of any audience in their path, Like A Motorcycle quickly began playing shows in the Halifax area. They have spent the better part of the last five years cultivating a sound and reputation that has captured attention from audiences and industry alike. Their music is authentic extension of their personalities, something born of “real life,” bassist Carson says.
LAM has played as direct support for such acts as Against Me!, Propagandhi, METZ, The Vibrators, Japandroids, The Pack A.D. and Danko Jones, to name a few.
On the heels of a successful campaign supporting their EP #motorpool, which culminated with a 2014 Nova Scotia Music Award for Best Loud Recording, the band posted up at Sydney NS’s Soundpark Studios in early 2015 to track their follow-up full-length effort, High Hopes.
