Philadelphia Rock outfit Soraia have released the new standalone single “Every Motion” via Wicked Cool Records. “Every Motion” follows the band’s recent cover of “Baby Borderline” by Swedish garage rockers The Hellacopters, and the 2022 full-length album Bloom.

Frontwoman ZouZou Mansour comments:

‘Every Motion’ is taking a look at how unresolved trauma passes through each generation told within the story of a powerful, instinctual wolf. Ultimately, the soul has become the surviving fighter: the wolf saving her young. The lyrics and music to this one developed pretty quickly. To me, that means it’s both honest and subconscious. I love that about ‘Every Motion’–making it my new favorite Soraia song.

This summer the band will head back out on the road for a tour that includes a string of West Coast shows. A Swedish tour with rockers Diamond Dogs launches in September.
