Boston’s Pop Punk Motionyear Unveils New Single + Video “Disarray” exclusively here on Substream! “Disarray” is Motionyear’s first release, with frontman Alex Kouvaris leading former band Quiet Like A Thief on 2021’s ‘Through The Looking Glass.

“Disarray” is probably one of the strongest pop punk singles we’ve heard in 2022!



“’Disarray’ is our brand new single, complemented by a stop motion music video created by the talented Norbert Crowfield (Bad Moon Films). The song is quite metaphorical, describing a verbally abusive and controlling relationship through the lens of a plant that has been abandoned in a bedroom. As this plant sits on a shelf, it becomes covered with dust, lacking water and the nutrients it requires to live. Rather than taking this abuse any longer, the plant escapes this relationship and finds life beneath the soil. In the music video, it starts off with a very gray and dark room. As the video progresses, the dying flowers and vines start to come to life, growing and becoming full of beauty and color. At the end, you can see that these visuals have escaped an abusive and controlling relationship – a form of art if you will – with explosive, vibrant colors and fully-bloomed pedals.” – Alex Kouvaris
