Grove Street Premiere "Ulterior Motives" Music Video

UK crossover kings GROVE STREET have premiered a music video for their new single "Ulterior Motives". The track will appear on the forthcoming album The Path To Righteousness due out this September courtesy of UNFD.

"'Ulterior Motives' is a song that goes through the motions of someone who is stuck in a toxic and abusive relationship with someone or something — be it a partner, friend or substance, or even a vice like gambling — and cannot find a way out. They keep getting pulled back into the situation at hand; they're in love, addicted, and can't see the impact of damage that's being done to them, because they've got rose-tinted glasses on," says guitarist Sandy.

He continues, "The second verse changes focus from the relationship/addiction itself to how people around that person turn a blind eye to what’s going on, because it's easier for many to just play ignorant to issues than to call it out or address it, which in turn just enables the problem to manifest further."

He also shares, "The outro finds the person coming to the realization that they're better off out of the relationship/addiction, and in order to live a better life they gotta move on. Musically, this is one of our favorite tracks on the record; I feel like it captures our sound as a whole perfectly; from the bouncy, hip-hop-inspired grooves in the intro that lead into the thrash feel. The outro is personally my proudest part of the record, I remember writing that and being so surprised with myself — like 'Where the fuck did that come from?'"
