Sessions Motts Share New Video and Single

Session Motts launch their new single “Plundered Past” on 30 May 2017, the second of a number of releases in 2017. A hyper-bright, emotional dance record inspired by the darkest subject imaginable. The song is accompanied by a video shot in Larne, Co. Antrim by film-makers Adam Hart, Richard Deering and Sinead O’Quigley, and is based on the true story of the 1988 unsolved murder of 18-year-old German backpacker Inga-Maria Hauser, whose body was found in a forest elsewhere in Co. Antrim. Despite its tragic inspiration, Plundered Past is an uptempo dancefloor stormer intended as a defiant celebration of a life cut short.

Session Motts’ trademark 80s-Modern sound – a hybrid of Post-Punk, Northern Soul, Disco and Burt Bacharach – was first heard on their debut single Chip Shop Fights, released in January this year. Nialler9 quickly named Session Motts ‘New Artist of the Week’ in The Irish Times, and the group soon picked up similar accolades from DublinLive.ie and DublinConcerts.ie. The song also gained regular airplay on RTÉ1, Newstalk, 98FM, Radio Nova, 8Radio and Dublin City FM, via, among others, Fiachna Ó Braonáin, Tom Dunne and Gavin Glass.

The reaction to Chip Shop Fights, from both media and fans alike, was overwhelmingly positive. As a result, although originally intended as a studio-only project, Session Motts are now playing live.
