The Wants – The Motor (Council Records) 
The Wants - The Motor

Release Date: Out Now

Despite a press shot that looks like the morning after a threesome in an awkward lift ride, The Wants know how to make a cracking song. ‘The Motor’ whirrs into life with a synthy motorbike engine sound followed by the kind of angular guitar riff and drum beat that you’d get from Franz Ferdinand covering a Kraftwerk tune with Yello and the Long Blondes in the production booth. This is sexy, dark and direct art-pop which throbs and snarls with a glint in its eye and mischief on its mind. If you want a new track to drive around to at night then this is the one for you, trust me.
