Damn!! I’m already a sucker for female fronted bands, but this track by Motive Black had me moving with the motivation I needed to keep my day pumped while I work on rock news!! The track “Lift Me Up” definitely showcases the talents of frontwoman Elana Justin, and features special guest Carla Harvey of Butcher Babies, on vocals. You can listen to it here:
Lift Me Up runs hot and heavy with super tight riffs and crunches in the right places. It’s got some of the old school feel of ravaging rock / metal, but it has a new feel that hooks you in for more. I feel slathered in lusciousness between these two powerful, dynamic vocal sensations!
The driving arrangement brings home that hard vibe, and it’s evident their vocal prowess stands out as a dominant force. From the fist time I heard Motive Black, I was hooked and couldn’t wait for more, and this new installment far exceeded my expectations. it’s a competitive world out there with the female fronted band, but Elana has developed her own niche and falls into place nicely.
Now that I’ve heard more, I need to see Motive Black live!! So bring it on … I’ll be there to cover that!
