Brooklyn-based band The Wants features members of fellow New York act Bodega and have released their groovy new single “The Motor,” that will appear on their debut album Container, which will be released on March 13th via Council Records.

The post-punk grooves and angular guitar work featured on the single are well paired with some icy atmosphere synth work that gives the whole thing a moody atmospheric feel.

A mix of electronic, punk and dance-rock, “The Motor” combines it sounds to create something that is very much of their own creation with a cinematic power to it, helped by the fact that it was actually recorded in a converted shipping container in NYC and inspired by David Lynch’s “Lost Highway”,
