Motive Black are poised for big things, says Eli Enis at Revolver and compares Elana Justin to
artists like Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale and the Pretty Reckless Taylor Momsen. Leah Brungardt at All
Access adds: Motive Black is the creative phoenix born of singer Elana Justin’s pain, tenacity,
and resilience.”

Auburn has been a roller coaster to work on, frontwoman and founding band member
Elana explains. It explores change, evolution, and the ugly and beautiful things that go along
with that. It's a ride through manic highs and heavy lows. There is a lot of messiness involved in
rediscovering yourself. I'm so grateful for all of the amazing people involved in the creation of
this album. It was really amazing working with people like Carla, Ray, Marcos, and of course
Nick. I am so excited to finally get Auburn out into the world!
