Melbourne-based The Motifs are currently Alexis (the band originator), Neil, Chris and May and they're lovely! They produce wonderful dollops of delicate melody, sugar-coated harmonies, and sheer joy and turn them into beautiful and diddy songs. The longest track on the EP I'm about to talk about is a whopping two minutes and twenty one seconds! Coincidentally it's also my favourite.
WeePOP! - that bastion of good taste - has recently released The Motifs' six song EP entitled Matches, which was mostly recorded in Japan. I believe it's The Motifs' third release (the others were Dots on Music Is My Girlfriend and Away on Lost In Found Records) and on this form I sincerely hope they'll have many more! Below you can download a song from Matches. If I were you, I'd get over to WeePOP! sharpish as they've only got a few copies left!
