Motopony is purposefully mysterious. You won't find a "band bio" anywhere. As charismatic frontman Daniel Blue told us, it's because he loves "magic and myth and symbolism."

You can hear it in the songs as well, which range from the folky pop of "King of Diamonds" to the sneering rock single "Seer," with lyrics like "I am a sinner, baby, I am a deceiver." Blue is clearly talented and performs with complete confidence.

For their live session at KCRW, they played a cover of Starsailor's "Alcoholic" and a new song that isn't even on their debut — "Get Down" — in addition to our station favorites. Motopony is definitely a band to keep an eye on.
