The Wants have followed up 'Fear My Society', which was one of our top songs of 2019, with another incredible cut with their exhilarating new single 'The Motor'. The song will be appearing on their forthcoming debut LP Container, due for release on March 13th via Council Records.

The racing track will leave you in a pool of sweat in the best way possible. According to Madison Velding-VanDam from the band, 'The Motor' started off as a live instrumental before they decided to add vocals onto it. Velding-VanDam also said in a statement, "I first had the epiphany for the spoken word vocals that feature in 'The Motor' whilst re-watching the introduction to one of my favourite movies, David Lynch’s “Lost Highway”. In it, racing pavement reveals only level white dotted lines shrouded in darkness as David Bowie croons his sinister, 90s industrial art-rock masterpiece, "I’m Deranged"."
