Like a Motorcycle

Dark melodies and cute merch

Like a Motorcycle played its first show at Gus’ in March. Since then the band has been working its ass off in a quest to create rock music that is darkly melodic and deeply felt. Good buddies Kim Carson, Jillian Comeau and Michelle Skelding have kept themselves busy booking shows, creating merch (cute t-shirts and collectible buttons of their faces) and, most importantly, being prolific---their six-song EP, produced by Jay Methot, is due out July 19. Like a Motorcycle’s music is a heady mash of squalling guitars, bass lines that stick to your ribs and tight, soulful drumming, with lyrics about attraction, headfuckery and all that other stuff that drives you to drink. They’re clever but not glib, scrappy but not hardened, and seem to know how to confront crimes of the heart without yielding to them. See what I mean on June 28 when they play at the Seahorse.
