Motorama have taken form in 2005, in the russian town of Rostov-on-Don. They have released 5 studio albums until now, two mini albums and a series of singles.
The voice of Vladislav Parshin has often been compared to that of Ian Curtis, and the band’s songs are only sung in English. This, plus the fac that the two mini albums of Motorama have a style that resonates very well with classic post-punk, have led to numerous allegations that the band are copying the british band Joy Division.
The comparison between the two bands has started with the release of their first LP entitled “Alps”. This release included new wave and indie pop sounds and thus made their music more uplifting and melancholic than depressive.
For a band from a port city near the border with the Ukraine, Motorama resemble New Yorkers that emulate the Manchester sound of the 80s. It would be absurd if the end result of their work wouldn’t sound so sublime.
The three angry shoegazers from Bucharest define their style as being post-traumatic blues and have influences in their music that ranges from punk to post-rock and from blues to prog or even academia music. For the night of the show, they have prepared a special acoustic-electronic setlist that is 30 minutes long, with completely new tracks and other radical re-interpretations.
Vlad Ilicevici: guitar, synthesizers, vocals, concept
Radu Pop: drums, art direction

The show will take place on the 17th of March in Club Control, Bucharest.
