Motorama Anounce New LP 'Dialogues', Share Trailer

Russian dream-pop quintet Motorama have announced they will release their fourth studio album titled 'Dialogues' in October via Talitres.

“I always try to have it all recorded uncut, in one breath, and have it thus enhanced in its delicate rugged beauty. (…) As I have figured it out, demos sometimes and even often happen to sound better than the actual records to be released”, Vladislav Parshin - vocals/guitar - revealed to Magic magazine in February 2015. As expected, the new record is no exception to that rule. As to the distinctive melodies, harmonies and lyrical texts, everything has just gone with the flow day after day in a do-it-yourself fashion that the band have been drawing on, up to the oldie but goodie Tascam Portastudio home recording mastered in a few short weeks.

Check out the tracklist and watch a trailer below.

Dialogues Tracklist:
01. Hard Times
02. Tell Me
03. Sign
04. Loneliness

06. I See You
07. Deep
08. Someone Is Missed
09. Reflection
10. By Your Side

He added, “All the buildings will turn back to sand. All it will be is nature again. We wanted to make something that reflected the beauty of that, and the wisdom that plants can give us about living harmoniously on this beautiful planet.” 

 Emperor Luke Steele said of recording in Hawaii, “Going to Hawaii to record was the best idea. That was the catalyst for me. I’d spend the morning surfing, then roll in and make music into the night.”
