Hot Bodies In Motion
Hot Bodies In Motion was formed by good friends Scott Johnson and Ben Carson in a Seattle basement 12 years ago. Both Johnson and Carson share a religious upbringing, which shaped their musical interests early as Johnson picked up guitar and Carson learned bass. By immersing themselves into their community, the duo explored a variety of musical outlets, such as high school choir and gigs at local farmer’s markets. After meeting in college choir, Carson and Johnson eventually started to jam together in their free time, which led to the creation of Hot Bodies In Motion.
Tracing their influences to various artists, ranging from Pharrell Williams and The Black Keys to
Rage Against the Machine and Mariah Carey, Hot Bodies In Motion is a powerful blend of throwback rock, dripping with soulful swagger that is equal parts fervent and sensual. With inescapable guitar hooks, pulsing rhythms, and a vintage vibe, Hot Bodies in Motion both promises and delivers. The duo has collaborated with notable artists such as Macklemore, Natalie from JOSEPH, and Allen Stone. Furthermore, they’ve championed major media outlets with placements in the Lionsgate Film Abduction, Netflix’s Lucifer, and NBC’s The Night Shift.
After a 10-year hiatus, Johnson and Carson are back and better than ever. Their first single back, “All Night,” paved the way for their upcoming EP, Fortune, dropping later this year. Fortune explores themes of difficult decisions in life that keep us up at night, being there for a loved one in crisis, and learning to embrace things outside of our control. Their unique sound, described as “baby-making mammal funk,” gives the duo creative freedom as they break genres.
