Good Day Noir Family,
Hit play on Raising Ravens’ “Motives” EP, and prepare to be pummeled – in the best way possible. The opening track, “Bright Side,” explodes from the speakers like a runaway freight train.

Motives is Raising Ravens’ Ep Out Now

This is a band that doesn’t mess around, laying down a thick layer of grunge-inspired riffs that wouldn’t feel out of place on a Nirvana or Alice in Chains record.

But Raising Ravens’ sound is also unmistakably modern, with raw energy and an intriguing edge.

“Nails” keeps the adrenaline pumping, with an in-your-face attitude reminiscent of classic rock bands like Hole.

The guitar work throughout the EP shines particularly the head-bobbing riffs that bridge verses in “Bright Side” and punctuate the other tracks.

But Raising Ravens aren’t a one-trick pony. “Jealousies” takes a sharp turn. Their powerful sound morphs into an introspective ballad that showcases the band’s versatility.

This track is all about raw emotion, a slow-burning exploration of heartache that’s intense and oddly nostalgic.

The EP closes with the instrumental “Love and Other Injuries,” a fitting title that hints at the lyrical depth lurking beneath the surface of Raising Ravens’ musical vision.

Every song title and lyrics here feels sharp and thought-provoking. This shows the band’s ability to express themselves not just musically, but also with words.

Tight musicianship, a potent blend of influences, and a clear message – “Motives” is an album that demands attention.

Raising Ravens is the new musical project for Australian artist, Jess Finlayson. Conceived in 2020 and kicking off with debut single release ‘careful what you wish for’, Raising Ravens has continued to grow in intensity with the 3rd single release, ‘It’s a Trap’, hitting number 1 in the Amrap Metro Charts in April 2021 and staying in the charts for 4 consecutive weeks.

​Raising Ravens is a hard-hitting rock-based project focusing on topics that tend to be swept under the carpet or ignored and touches on subjects relating to worldwide and personally experienced abuses of power and the effects those abuses have on those who are at its mercy.

​Starting out as the lead guitarist for all female hard-rock renegades, Nitocris followed by the infamous Fyreflyes, Jess has been touring nationally and internationally, writing and recording since the age of 15. Most recently being the founding member, lead singer/guitarist for The Mis-Made who disbanded in 2019. Having traversed the chaos of the reinvention, Raising Ravens recently released the debut EP, ‘In My Room’ which was also the first for Finlayson’s label, Interloper Records. The full length album, Leaving With The Halflight was release in 2023 and saw the band tour nationally and internationally and was created with long standing producer, Lachlan Mitchell and some of her favourite musicians and co-conspirators.
