Motor Honey (Peace) is a new track from Heavy AmericA, an alternative hard rock band out of Boston, MA. These guys definitely have some chops. Their sound reminds me of the late 80’s early 90s hard rock bands I remember growing up with, the kind that would appear on the soundtracks of cool horror movies and late night HBO action flicks. There’s nothing really “retro” or gimmicky about the song, but listening to this jam makes you remember how great it was before autotune and heavy processing became the industry standard. The song has a good clean sound, and the band members play their instruments very well. Motor Honey (Peace) is a testosterone fueld, pulsepounding adventure tune. The video visuals highlights the racing theme of the song, which I guess could be taken literally and/or metaphorically in the romantic sense. The music has a high power level, and the singer has the perfect voice for this genre of music. Singing well at this level of volume is way more difficult than most people realize, and this guy pulls it off. The performance here is very charismatic, and while this song will certainly get you pumped, there is a sentimental subtext to it that shouldn’t be overlooked.
