Coltrane Motion are amongst the city’s best of the rising crop of shoegazers - including Panda Riot and Tirra Lirra - to introduce a dance element to the subgenre’s typical swath of gauzy guitars. Such a development can be heard in Coltrane Motion’s upcoming June release Hello Ambition!, the title of which should give you an idea of where the band wants to go with its blend of upbeat electronica and psychedelic ambiance. The band was kind enough to share an advance listen of "Please Call It A Comeback" off Hello Ambition!
