Many of the songs are notably inspired by Elspeth's adolescent years.
The dream pop/shoegaze band worked with Leonard Soosay of Snakeweed Studios for this album which sees the continuation of their musical journey after their previously unveiled singles, 'fluorescent' and 'lovelost'.
Fresh off their Baybeats performance as part of the Baybeats Budding Bands artist development programme in October, motifs aspire to perform at more live shows with an eventual plan to tour overseas.
