Motopony – “King of Diamonds” [VIDEO]

10/07/2011

Motopony is another great Pacific Northwest group. Bands from the rain-drenched region have really mastered the fresh melancholy clarity inherent with a place that only sees sunshine 71 days a year. Motopony takes hints of Death Cab for Cutie without drowning in whine.

The video is a bit literal, overblown rockstar costumes and the Las Vegas Strip but is nonetheless perfectly complementary to the music.
