Coltrane Motion are a Chicago-based electronic indie rock duo, with a new album out entitled 'Hello Ambition!'. Lead singer Michael Bond records sixties-obsessed electronic pop in his home studio, while guitarist Matt Dennewitz covers it all in wailing distortion and delay at their live shows - the result is a raucous wall of sound built out of drum loops and fuzzed-out melodies, held together by swirling synths and organ drone.

The group has its origins in a handful of lo-fi CD-R and compilation releases, culminating in their 2007 full-length debut, 'Songs About Music', and a series of successful tours across the US & Canada. Their frantic live show has been described by the press as an 'exuberant seizure' and 'the cool kids in programming class', its hyperactive intensity a far cry from your usual laptop performances.
