Colorado funksters The Motet have released a new song, “Supernova.” The swingin’ new single comes after the release of last year’s Totem LP and features another soulful side of vocalist Lyle Divinsky, who’s passion for songwriting was first integrated into the band in 2016. Described by the band as a “brand new sexy disco funk party banger,” “Supernova” exemplifies The Motet’s agenda with their signature brand of world-class funk.
The Denver-based act have been coming strong with the funk force since 1998, led by founder and drummer Dave Watts. With Joey Porter (keys), Garrett Sayers (bass), Ryan Jalbert (guitar), Gabe Mervine (trumpet), Drew Sayers (sax), and the fairly recent addition of singer Lyle Divinsky, The Motet come at you with a complete and unified sound, digging extra deep into the world of funk with flourishes of afrobeat and jazz throughout. This iteration of the band continues to prove why they are of the best in the scene in “Supernova,” which you can listen to below.
The Motet are gearing up for their second headlining performance at Red Rocks Amphitheater on Friday, June 2 with support from Jurassic 5 and The California Honeydrops. Later in the summer, when Phish descends upon New York City, The Motet will extend the action on Friday, July 21st, with a late-night show of their own at BB King Blues Club & Grill (purchase tickets here).
