Sensory Motor

Sensory Motor


soft soothing seething vocals, heavy chords, mesmeric melodies


The music of San Francisco’s Sensory Motor is like muddied ocean waves relentlessly massaging your cells then subtly or suddenly ripping them apart to spotlight the insides. Sylvia Roberts’ voice has a wooing quality that gently vibrates into your ears and bones. Inevitably as the emotion fluxuates and turns inside out, her tone takes on a lecturing force or at times a sudden angst resolving screech. This sensitized intensity and Sensory Motor’s sound is held afloat by the uncompromising guitar which moves from melodic moments of introspective jubilance to a pure heaviness that plods straight into your lungs and a rhythm section which forcefully and intricately holds it’s own. This hybrid results in a fresh sound, as always drawn from those who came before—Led Zeppelin, Fugazi, Tool, Massive Attack, yet layered together and wooed by a sweetness that creates an all together new sound.
