Formed by four friends who met on Edinburgh Napier’s popular music course: Jonah Stead (Guitar/Lead Vocals), Struan Nelson (Guitar/Vocals), Morgan Smith (Bass/Vocals) and Euan Lyons (Drums/Vocals) started the band in 2016.
Blending 70’s-esque low-slung guitar riffs, melodic basslines and dance infused driving indie beats, the band draws influence from Britpop, hip-hop, alt-rock, beat poetry, punk, grunge, delta-blues and new-wave. The Motion Poets’ debut single “One Too Many” was released on the 5th of May 2017 and recieved praise from The Scotsman, Amazing Radio, Metro and The Scottish Sun. The music video was released shortly after and premiered by The Skinny.
