I forgot how much I love a good support band. Melbourne band The Motifs supported The Drums at Oxford Art Factory last week and I was rather delighted that Joshua had made me arrive a little early despite my pleas for a quick nap. They were adorable, with their blue jumpers and xylophone playing. A little bit Crayon Fields, a little bit Camera Obscura, a little bit Lullatone. Altogether wonderful and super cute.
The dodgy Youtube videos I was finding really didn't do them justice. My suggestion would be to head to their Myspace or LastFM quick sticks and listen to their sweetness.
