The Everyday Motive - Seven Song EP

The Everyday Motive - Seven Song EP
2010, The Everyday Motive

Milwaukee quartet The Everyday Motive spent a whole lot of time listening to alternative music during the 1990’s, a fact that is apparent when listening to their Seven Song EP. Influenced by bands such as the Foo Fighters, Weezer, Nirvana, Green Day and Stone Temple Pilots, the band also features high pop aesthetics woven into each song.

Everyday Motive’s Seven Song EP opens with "Anything Done Differently", an appealing modern rock tune with stripped-down sound. Solid vocals and a big pop hook help to create a high-energy, danceable rock tune. The song explores each of our own worst enemies while staying positive. "Lock It Up" is highly melodic and catchy; a bit of the low-key side for commercial radio but which might just turn into a hit single anyway. "From What I Can Remember" is pure pop/rock gold with a chorus that is likely to take over your skull and set up checkpoints. The angular style of the song mixed with The Everyday Motive's sense of dynamics and harmony vocals make this a potential breakout hit. "You're No Good" finds The Everyday Motive sounding more than a bit like Cowboy Mouth with a slightly heavier rock sound. It's a strong tune that's perfect for modern rock formats. The Everyday Motive closes with "Waste Away", a somewhat cookie-cutter tune that retains optimum sound.

The Everyday Motive has the potential to be huge. Breaks aside, The Everyday Motive appear to be in a good position to maintain and sustain a career of making music. Their Seven Song EP is an apt introduction, certain to inspire people to want to learn more about the band. Make sure you check out The Everyday Motive. You won't be sorry you did.
