Biography

With a hurtling rhythm section, erratic and explosive guitars and vocal melodies and harmonies that send shivers to the nether regions, Motocade’s musical style has made an imprint in amongst the New Zealand alternative populus.

The four piece Auckland indie rock band formed in 2005 and offered a self titled EP released in 2006 and the ‘Into the Fall’ EP released in 2007. Both were critically acclaimed and showed the depth the band have and their ability to transcend rock, indie and explore experimental pop avenues.

Their style fits somewhere in amongst the intensity of the Strokes, the groove of Talking Heads and the scattered beauty of early Kings Of Leon.

The band have played at a range of New Zealand’s largest music festivals including the Big Day Out, Home Grown and Rhythm and Vines as well as at high profile events such as NZ Fashion Week, and the APRA Silver Scroll Awards. Motocade have also performed live on popular local music TV shows ‘Top of the Pops’ and ‘Live At Yours’.

Road tested and with a strong NZ following Motocade have toured extensively throughout New Zealand as well as shows in Australia. They were applauded for a stand out performance supporting New York based band The Bravery on their recent New Zealand tour.

The new Album TIGHTROPE HIGHWAY is instores NZ wide and at iTunes April 20.

    They're pretty alright. I recall seeing the lead singer in a Bauhaus shirt in one of their videos, so he obviously has great taste. :P
