The Story:

Formed in Patchogue, New York in the summer of 2008, The Given Motion was a distant concept preceded by an undeniable energy and creative force, one that has sustained the band through triumph and hardship to their 1st record, Human Dictionary which is available on One Alliance Records in April 2012. 

The Given Motion lets it’s talent do the talking, honing themselves on writing music that only comes when it’s good and ready. Human Dictionary promises to give the listener what they want to hear from a Long Island-born group: an unrestrained perspective, without the filler.

The Given Motion strive to give the most to their fans, who demand more than singles (while many acts scurry for the mainstream at the expense of the greater work). The band is constantly at work creating something new and honest. So long as our lives keep changing, you can count on the band to “Give Motion” to the tired and always leave you with something original.

Want to catch the guys live, well they’re performing a unique show on Friday, May 11th at  O’Brian’s, Coram, New York. You can buy their new album ‘Human Dictionary’ from amazon now. 

What the Press are Saying:

Whiteboard Project – “The Given Motion increase our vocabulary with their 7-track album Human Dictionary. It’s another voyage into familiar pop-rock territory…an easy listen that could have a broad mainstream appeal.”

Pop Culture Madness – “I find their sound could be compared to bands such as The Script and even possibly The Fray, as majority of the tracks on the band’s debut album “Human Dictionary” blend together rock music with pop sensibility to deliver a beautifully balanced sound that is sure to catch any listeners attention”

Ringmaster Review – “It is safe to say The Given Motion is destined to be a major player in the future playlist of the world with Human Dictionary their first very impressive entry”

AltSounds – “Never in so many years has a band gotten under my skin like this.”

Totally Vivid – “The Given Motion are a band clearly well aware of the importance of a great hook in amongst the midst of all the guitars, a voice to speak up out of the bleak city streets of their New York home turf. They’re a group with plainly-manifested youthful ambition, a work-man like appeal.”
