"War Paint" by Relative Motion

Sometimes going to college will cause bands to break up, but some bands are so dedicated they just consider it a periodic break. Formed as high school students in San Juan Capistrano, Relative Motion is now scattered at universities across the US (Orange County, Chico, Chicago, Boston) but that doesn’t stop them from reuniting, performing, and recording during their school breaks. Their debut EP entitled Peaches will soon be released, and the quintet band uses pop melodies and lush harmonies to craft an indie surf sound that’s perfect for a beach after-party. Highlighting the EP is the upbeat yet soft “War Paint” which at one point is reminiscent of The Walkmen mid-career:
