Biography

Motion Picture writes music that invites linkages between film, sound, and narrative. The songs emphasize conversational lyrics that evoke picturesque images and themes from the distant romantic era of black and white celluloid. Plaintive and contemplative, Motion Picture calls to mind the lush fragility of Belle & Sebastian, the lovelorn lyricism of Trembling Blue Stars, and the sophisticated melodic stamp of early Felt. The group formed at Monmouth College, Illinois in 1992, and now writes and records in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
