Stereo Motion, doesn't only recognize the need for a rock and roll revolution, but are ready to start it themselves. With an electrifying collision of rock's historic roots and modern alternative texturing, combined with impeccable lyrical and musical craftsmanship, the group's self-titled debut is sure to get listeners' fists in the air and ears ringing with admiration.
"A lot of people listen to music just because it's new, but a fad's not going to last forever," exclaims Stereo Motion's singer/guitarist Bryan Nance Jr. "When you first listen to a lot of pop music, it may hook you in because it sounds cool. But like bubble gum, you spit it out when the sounds get stale."
"We want to make songs that aren't just cool because they're new; we want them to be filled with so much soul and passion that they last beyond this era." More important than Stereo Motion's longevity quest, these four young men are serious when it comes to their own spiritual development, noting that musical expression brings those desires full circle. "To be honest, we're still growing, and we have a lot of questions that we're still seeking answers to in these songs," reveals Bryan. "We've dealt with everything from the politics of the music business to whims of the world as we've prepared for this project; but we've learned it's not about how you sound or look that matters in the end, it's the way you love."
Evidence of that noble pursuit can be found in ample amounts on this project, from its lyrical and compositional style to the actual recording techniques that birthed it. Immediate attention-grabbers include the gun-slinging guitars and vocal grunts of "Steal the Show," the mounting tension of "Sweetest Sound," and the explosive "Revolution Times" (certain to make AC/DC proud), all of which simultaneously indulge listeners in a nostalgic time warp and a contemporary cavalcade of stylistic superiority. It's a seamless bridging of two generations, met with equally relevant and life-affirming songwriting that rises above demographics and belief mechanisms.
