"Press Release"

London ON, based Motion Groves ‘Do the Reggae’ taken from their upcoming debut album is a sonic merger between Bedoin Soundclash and Blind Melon. The bands style is based in Reggae, but clearly shows some influence from ska, and a dash of mainstream pop.

Beginning with a light echo on the lead guitar the song draws you in with a slow, almost acoustic verse. Motion Grove moves swiftly into a bouncy reggae chorus that will have you singing along. The lyrics manage to be fun and light hearted without being too cheesy. They reference “singing in the rain” which I felt gave the track a whimsical quality. I don’t think I’ve heard classic Hollywood images referenced in many Reggae songs.

Vocally, Sean has a clean and pure quality. He maintains an even and enjoyable performance throughout the track. The overall production took place at Emac a studio in their locality. The small town operation produces a more live off the floor feel for the band, and remains organic all the way through with little or no computer effects. The track makes for overall easy listening; it’s an early taste of summer. This song’s instrumentation and production, would be best appreciated by 90’s indie music fans. - All Access Magazine
