Motion West


Vocalist, Bass Guitar, Keyboard, Piano, Electronic Music.


We're an electronic/"chill-wave"/alternative band out of San Jose, CA. There are two of us, both in our mid 20's, college graduates with day jobs. However, we love making music together and have both a studio at home (recording) and in Fremont (rehearsal) that we use on evenings and weekends.

One plays bass, guitar, drums and a small amount of piano/keys (not all at once, we tend to switch around based on parts we've written) and the other plays drums, piano and bass, and is the producer/recorder/mixer/master(er).

I would compare our sound to the following bands:
M83, The Neighbourhood, Foster the People, with a tiny hint of hip-hop influence (mostly in the beats). We like to make dance music, but with a blend of live instruments and produced beats/ambient tracks.

Members Of Band

Two mid-20's, college-educated musicians who have been making music since middle school together.


We have guitars (also bass), amps, mics, pro audio and recording equipment, gig-ready PA and everything else we would need to make music. However, we are welcome to new sounds and new instruments, so don't hesitate to bring it up if you have something original to offer.
