Biography

New York City’s White Light Motorcade is modern rock revival, unabashedly loud and electic, mindful of their roots but grounded in the present. Like the band’s influences both old school (The Stooges, MC5) and new (Oasis, Supergrass, Muse), they transcend the high volume intensity with keen melodies and well-crafted songs. But if this is pop, it isn’t pretty. The songs are often brash and in your face, while still retaining an instinct for dynamics and well-timed moments of Brit-edged (a la Stone Roses) machinations. White Light Motorcade’s debut record was produced by Brad Jones (Cotton Mather, Imperial Drag, Jill Sobule, House of Large Sizes), who saw them by chance at a New York showcase and attached himself to the project immediately. Asked what sold him on the group, Jones explains: “Brilliant melodies, great guitar playing, bass and drum playing of rock’n’roll animals… and just the right amount of chaos to keep it dangerous.” With conviction and chemistry, White Light Motorcade literally explodes on stage and on record, testing the waters of something beyond “appropriate” volume, reveling in a wide array of four-on-the-floor angst and aggressive, amp-heavy crunch. Between singer Harley Dinardo’s back-street, proto-punk snarl, the emphatic bite of guitarist Mark Lewis, and the airtight bombast of drummer Stu Richards and bassist Tommy USA, WLM still sounds as though they are avoiding easily placed musical labels.
