The track is accompanied by an Emma Penrose & Zack Shorrosh-directed video, which mirrors the song’s themes of romantic fantasy. “I wrote this song about a boy I had a crush on who really wanted nothing to do with me,” explains Weingarten, who sings lead vocals on “Motorbike.” “The song is basically just fantasy – even though it’s about a real person, it’s also about how we can make up elaborate ideas of who other people are in our heads, and get so caught up in these fake scenarios that they kind of end up feeling real. I wanted the song to feel like you’re escaping something, because my daydreams about this boy and his motorcycle were definitely an escape from my life at the time.”
The new single follows a breakthrough year for the band that has seen them open for Wet Leg and Beabadoobee in the US and perform their first headlining shows in the UK, including a sold-out show at The Windmill in London, and fill a string of packed rooms across Brighton for The Great Escape.
The band will follow the album with dates in the US with Snail Mail.
