Craig Fahner, Matt Learoyd, and Jesse Locke’s paths have intertwined for a long time. They’ve played together as Motorists for three years, but have been in and out of various projects together since their teenage years. Craig’s previous bands include Feel Alright and Leather Jacuzzi, while Jesse plays with Tough Age, Simply Saucer, and Chandra, with whom he runs the label We Are Time. They also share an eclectic mix of influences from post-punk to power pop to krautrock. Their debut record Surrounded was mastered by Australian punk-rock legend Mikey Young (of Total Control and Eddy Current Suppression Ring), and released September 2021 via We Are Time/Bobo Integral/Debt Offensive.
