MOTO BANDIT is a collaboration of Nashville-based musicians Ben Merlotti and Dennis Pickett. The two came together to release their debut single, KEANU: WEAPONIZED. Originally meeting at school in Cincinnati to join the band Cave Mode Shake, the duo began side-writing dream pop and has recently started to publish their recordings.
“KEANU: WEAPONIZED is a briskly infectious jangle-rocker from MOTO BANDIT. As the vocals open, “skinny-dipping to the rhythm,” there’s an escalating guitar presence that jangles with hypnotic resonance. The additional guitar lines in the final section does well in recapping the band’s contagiously reverberating sound, crossing ’80s jangle-pop and post-punk sentiments with modern charm, which I’m looking forward to hearing much more of."
