Brighton’s vibrant music scene has birthed a standout force in the form of Down In Motion. In a city teeming with talent, particularly with the influence of BIMM Institute, this band has managed to carve out a distinct niche for themselves with their latest release, ‘Into The River.’ How? By writing energetic, kick arse music that reeks authenticity and power. Additionally, the track also has great lyrics and musicianship that is of the highest order.

The track is a harmonious fusion, reminiscent of classic punk-pop and power bands—a meeting point somewhere between Biffy Clyro and Fall Out Boy. Down In Motion’s ability to create energetic, authentic, and powerful music is evident, complemented by lyrics that tell a compelling story with both passion and cleverness. The clear and emotive vocal delivery, led by Tom, not only enhances the track but ensures that the song’s lyrics are distinctly heard—a feat deserving acknowledgment.

The seamless interplay between the guitars, bass, and drums highlights the band’s musical prowess without overshadowing the track’s storytelling. Down In Motion proves to be a band of musicians who play for the song rather than themselves. Their adept use of stop-start dynamics strategically introduces an additional layer of energy, magnifying the song’s impact and accentuating key elements at precisely the right times. Both the chorus and verses boast an infectious catchiness, once again underscoring the band’s skilful artistry in crafting a song.
