Philadelphia alt rock band GRAYSCALE have shared the video for “Motown” from their 2021 album Umbra. “Motown” is a catchy pop rock anthem with dance fuelled rhythms, driving funked up bass, crisp guitars, old school synths and even a saxophone solo to boot… We dare you to listen to this song and not tap your foot once! The music video is aptly 70s themed to fit the Motown narrative.

The quintet have opened up themselves and their sound throughout these 11 tracks. For Grayscale, Umbra is the end of the beginning. All previous records served as stepping stones accumulating and shaping the band’s course and leading them down an artistic and aesthetic path to this point. Umbra is more of a feeling than a concept; it is an energy. It is all the things we keep underneath or to ourselves. It is the cold feeling of internal conflict, the bargaining, and the wickedness that exists within a space otherwise covered in light. The sounds don’t necessarily match the stories; the energy doesn’t always match the intent. It’s not about the light or the dark. It’s about the light and the dark. Welcome to the other side.
