SUB MOTION are a Dublin based explosive punk/rock band that have been around for 4 years now. After releasing several EP’s the band took some time to revamp their sound and image in early 2016. The result of this was their single “HEADCHECKED”, released in October 2016. This single marked the new beginning for the band and gained immediate praise, with Hot Press telling everyone to ““Meet the band of unashamedly serious rockers defiantly pushing against the grain of indie and folk bands in Ireland”. RTE 2fm’s Dan Hegarty announced it as his “favourite song of the second half of 2016”, along with RTE radio stations from the UK and US playlisted the track. Now SUB MOTION just released their new highly anticipated single “SOCCER MOM” on FEB 24th. Recorded live and with James Darkin at the helm (Kanye, Funeral suits, Hozier, , Rihanna) this song along with the other singles to be released has grabbed the attention of many big hitters in the industry and it’s not long till you see these rockers making a very big impression on the music scene.

The band are currently working on releasing several singles and planning Irish & UK shows for later in the year. 2017 is looking like a very promising year for the band and it seems the year they took to revamp themselves is paying off in a big way.
