Critically acclaimed indie-rock band Motopony return with a new LP, Welcome You, the follow up to their
2011 self-titled debut. Welcome You distils the last four years of spell-crafting, song-writing, knot tying, child
bearing, rebuilding, reimagining and rebirth. It is a welcome and a warning. It is the humility to admit we
didn’t get it quite right, even though we welcome life with open hearts, do our very best, and always return
to the path. The desperate fact is, we don’t actually know where it goes.
The first single “Daylights Gone” is a song relating major character changes to the phases of the moon, and the “to what” question implicit in the title, “Welcome You” presents the mystery of identity to the listener.
The record was recorded live to analogue tape at Bear Creek Studios in Seattle and was produced by Mike
McCarthy (Spoon, Heartless Bastard, …Trail of The Dead) and mixed in London by Guy Massey
(Spiritualized, Radiohead, Manic Street Preachers). The band will be touring the US, and Europe in
support of the release through 2015.
