"Seeds Of Change”

In Motives’ song, “Seeds Of Change,” vocalist Ian Slagle shouts the well-known Gandhi line: “Be the change you want to see in the world!” That, according to bassist Daniel Ackerman, is the goal of the melodic-hardcore band. “We wanted to bring some positivity into the Cleveland local scene,” Ackerman says. “Many bands have very similar lyrics that are full of hate and degrade women. We wanted to stray away from that and instead of dwelling on problems, live past them.” Motives intend to release an EP and tour Ohio in the near future
