MOTHXR – Touch

MOTHXR

Brooklyn four-piece MOTHXR returns with ‘Touch’.

Despite having already been placed high in music charts across the world, MOTHXR is a band that is not particularly vocal about its successes, remaining relatively “undiscovered”…but that’s why we like them; they just get on with things.

Penn Badgley (also of Gossip Girl fame) says the band’s music lies “somewhere between DIY punk production aesthetic, new wave and R&B,” naming influences like LCD Soundsystem, the Beastie Boys, and Arthur Russell. He calls their improvised songwriting “meticulous, but totally spontaneous.”

It’s the band’s first new music since signing with Washington Square and Kitsuné Records, but it’s equally as sensual as their last, with a subtle build up to an incredible climax at the end.
