Indie quintet Motorama hails from Rostov-on-Don and is making an impact outside of its native Russia.
Motorama has headlined major Russian festivals such as Moscow’s 50,000 crowd Afisha Picnic. But, having released two albums to critical acclaim and having played at large European festivals such as Exit in Noviy Sad in Serbia, the band is starting to attract fans outside of Russia.
Last year released its second album, Calendar, was released to a warm welcome from reviewers like the BBC’s Martin Aston. He poured praise on the album saying that Motorama “resemble a bunch of New Yorkers emulating the sound of 80s Manchester.”
Indeed, some tracks are reminiscent of the sadly forgotten The Railway Children, while others seek to emulate early New Order.
The quintet now comes to Exit07 to give Luxembourg a taste of their jingly-jangly pop.
Support comes from Normandy band Clockwork of the Moon, whose sound is described as “melodious folk subtly tainted with pyschedelic undertones.”
