"Winter - Laws of Motion"

It’s December. The hours of daylight are shorter, the weather’s getting colder, and everyone’s anxious for the start of a new year. There are some days when you just don’t want to get out of bed; you peer outside, and all you can think of is fast-forwarding to the end of the day so that you can be cocooned in your duvet again. The responsibilities seem more tedious and the seconds seem infinitely longer. With all these stretched out hours, sometimes all you can do is reflect. Did you fail to achieve those goals you had adamantly proclaimed you’d reach at the start of the year? Did some relationships fall apart, some of which you could have prevented had you just done something? Do you have regrets?

Enter Laws of Motion. The falsetto voice that’s faintly reminiscent of Jónsi of Sigur Rós or Thom Yorke of Radiohead coupled with the soft acoustics creates the perfect soothing, subtly uplifting effect. The appropriately titled “Winter,” which will be featured in their forthcoming EP due in February, features a slow, smooth, unobtrusive progression as the song picks up with the introduction of drums. Like the UK band’s name implies, the laws of motion are in play, and winter will end as quickly as it started. - Pigeons and Planes

"Laws of Motion"

Laws of Motion know exactly how they want to sound: the spacey Radiohead melancholy of ‘Fake Plastic Trees’ or ‘How To Disappear Completely’. Big ask, requiring regimented-yet-exploratory drums, slowly/sharply uncoiling guitar textures and, most of all, a voice to take flight and glide at effortless will. Rather remarkably, the asking is answered, extraordinary voice especially. At the moment, then, a voice – indeed, a band – beautifully able to float like a butterfly; given a little encouragement to develop an ability to also – just occasionally – sting like a bee, and they could be proper-job contenders. Promising. - Venue Magazine, April 2011


Poltergeist EP 2011



The current line up formed in 2011 in Bath, England. With a range of musical influences the band (consisting of Matt James vocals/guitars, Chris King guitars, Dan Sartain drums and Graeme Dart bass) started to create songs with atmosphere and depth. Each song crafted and considered in the band's industrial practice space.

A host of summer and autumn gigs followed in several venues across Bath, Bristol and London - with some great crowd reactions and feedback.

Winter 2011 saw the band record their first EP 'Poltergeist' including tracks 'Winter' 'Sweetheart and 'Ghostwritten.' The result is the haunting yet beautiful sounds of a band really finding their stride. 2012 is the year they hope to continue developing their sound and playing their unique music to international audiences.

Influences include: Elliott Smith, Radiohead, The National, Bon Iver, Jeff Buckley, Pearl Jam, Sigur Ros, Idlewild, Smashing Pumpkins, Arcade Fire, Led Zeppelin, Muse, Bright Eyes, Doves, Coldplay, Frightened Rabbit, Bombay Bicycle Club, Bloc Party...
