MOTIVA – Un Motivo Ci Sara
MOTIVA is an Italian band that was formed in 2007 in Taranto, Italy and without being a 100% sure; I think that this is their debut full length album. So let me tell you a few things about this release in order to help you make up your mind.
THE COVER: It is quite simple actually. On a black fond you can see a wooden doll watching a source of light below and also it has the band name and the album title. This is the kind of a cover that I would expect in a progressive rock or metal band, but the only common thing that MOTIVA have with the above mentioned genres is that they play some kind of rock. By the way, I liked the cover.
MUSICAL STYLE: Well let me explain to you the kind of rock that I have mentioned above. The music of MOTIVA is clearly radio friendly rock music which is based on melody and of course it has a lot of pop elements. Without being an expert to this kind of sound, they reminded me of artists like Eros Ramazzotti and Bryan Adams.
COMPOSITIONS: The compositions that are included in this release have all the elements that you can expect from a pop/rock band which means they are emphasizing on melody and are quite catchy. The band really seems to have a deep knowledge of the kind of sound they play and their compositions sound fresh.
CONCLUSION: I don’t know how many of you that read this webzine are into pop/rock sound, but I think that MOTIVA are good on what they do and they are a well bonded band and have the talent for the kind of music they play. So, if you like pop/rock and also appreciate the Italian language, then give them a try.
