The Sydney-based boys Matt Rowe and Ed Rose of HI MOTIVE continue to impress with their new pulsing single ‘Gone’.
Originating from different parts of Australia, Matt and Ed bonded over their broad love of music. The titillating electronic duo, still only in their first year as proper artists despite writing music together since 2014, have created a beautifully complex tune.
The track explores the inner narrative of loss and naivety experienced in a fallout, featuring an enigmatic mix of melodic vocals and infectious synths.
Known to latch onto an electronic groove, the pair began creating mixes together in their university dorm room where they refined their sound into a melodic, moody style.
After selling out their Sydney 'Silk' launch event in July, HI MOTIVE will be performing alongside Kira Puru, Tom Tilley and others this month at Jam In A Jar Sydney, a charity event raising funds for Headspace.
If you’re a fan of RÜFÜS DU SOL, ODESZA or Hayden James, you’ll love the steady beat, echoed synths, and distant vocals of HI MOTIVE’s third release. Stream the infectiously throbbing single ‘Gone’ now.
