Yesterday I was sent a link to Motorcycle Display Team’s new album, Captatio Benevolentiae (which according to lead singer Steven Hinds is a term in rhetoric to describe the opening salvo of a public address intended to win over an audience).
It’s interesting for me to listen to it because MDT’s stuff doesn’t fall necessarily into any of the genres I listen to on a regular basis.
I sent them this via email: “My take is that you guys have a touch of the Black Keys, with some of The Drums thrown in and a touch of Two Door Cinema Club in the vocals.”
Betweenager is my personal favourite (first single for sure). In fact, I love the guitar hook on it and I prefer their tracks that – like that one- are a little more up-tempo and current.
