Hear Motopony's relaxed psychedelia on '1971' -- exclusive

Posted on

Seattle alt-folkies Motopony will release their sophomore album Welcome You later this month. The group’s music blends the spaciness of early Pink Floyd with Bowie-style glam and filters it all through a modern indie pop lens—a style that’s gotten Motopony tunes into shows like House and Suits.

Welcome You doesn’t drop until June 23, but EW has the exclusive premiere of one of the record’s best cuts, “1971.” Check the song out, along with tour dates, below.
