On The Table Read Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, Los Angeles based project Surprise Baby has released new single, Motorcycle, about the feeling of escapism, with muted, jangly guitars, mellow melodies and celestial harmonies.
Musician and songwriter Sarsten Noice and producer Claire Morison created Surprise Baby to release rock and roll cowboy meets indie pop music. Originally from Northwest Montana, Noice and Morison use their long-standing relationship as friends and creative partners to craft a sound which is both authentic and captivating.
Not afraid to speak her truth, Noice shares how she uses songwriting as a way to process her internal world and give intense emotions a way out of her body.
I try to create imagery that accurately captures a specific feeling and then allow myself to build lyrics in an abstract way, opposed to straightforward storytelling. This I hope leaves the songs open to the listeners’ interpretation.
Their upcoming EP is a result of Surprise Baby refusing to be pigeon-holed and see’s the two exploring a realm of different genres and sounds. The highly anticipated upcoming EP will see Surprise Baby continue to touch on themes surrounding relationships, self-growth, spirituality and transformation.
Following the release of their debut single Poison the Well, Motorcycle” is the second track from the EP and details a commentary on the feeling of escapism.
Shimmering with muted, jangly guitars, mellow melodies and celestial harmonies, Motorcycle creates an iridescent soundscape that you can truly lose yourself within. It is a mostly fictional narrative on the desire to escape a relationship, specifically on a motorcycle heading to New York.
Call it a quarter life crisis, call it fear of commitment, the feeling is that of running away. There is also a sentiment of not wanting your partner to worry over you, and making the unrealistic promise that you won’t die on the road. The fact that the narrator believes so deeply they won’t die while simultaneously desiring to be as close to danger as possible is the irony of the song itself.-Sarsten Noice
