Sounds | Motive Black, Lift Me Up

Modern klinkende metal met vrouwelijk vocalen die je eerst poeslieve kopjes tegen je been komen geven om je het volgende moment als een python te wurgen, het ligt in de lijn van acts als In This Moment, Halestorm of The Pretty Reckless.

Op deze nieuwe single van het uit LA afkomstige Motive Black vallen ons vooral de lekkere drums op en de fijne bijdrage van Carla Harvey van Butcher Babies.

Lift Me Up is de tweede vooruitgescheven single uit het later dit jaar te verschijnen debuutalbum van Motive Black


The powerful music video for "Lift Me Up" features the red hot synergy of Justin performing together with Butcher Babies' Carla Harvey in a street fighting sequence fans will want to view on repeat. Elana Justin explains: "I wanted the video to focus on female strength. The director and I worked together to come up with an idea that spoke to that. It was also fun to step out of my comfort zone and try something new. I've never done anything combat related so it seemed like it would be a fun avenue to explore. The director, Dale Resteghini, also directed the video for "Broken". I'm a Butcher Babies fan, so when the song was played for Carla and she agreed to perform on it I was super excited. Carla is a great example of a badass woman killing it in the music industry. I think her vibe fits the song perfectly. She really added something special to "Lift Me Up." Working together really brought the song up to a new level. I think it's really important for people to see women working together to create music and art. We keep seeing It more and more and it's so exciting. It’s essential for women in this industry to stick together and support each other. There is so much more female visibility in this kind of music than there was even just a few years ago." Carla Harvey (Butcher Babies) concurs stating "I love collaborating with strong women on projects so when I was asked to add my vocals to "Lift Me Up," I happily obliged. The result…an infectious tune, a new found friendship and a ride through Compton in the sickest 1968 Firebird…the stuff dreams are made of!"
