Los Angeles-based alternative metal band, Motive Black (AFM Records) has released their new single “Lift Me Up”. Produced by Grammy-winner Nick Rowe (Bloodsimple, Vampire Weekend), the track focuses on the talents of newcomer Elana Justin, and features special guest Carla Harvey, of the internationally acclaimed metal band Butcher Babies, on vocals. The music video for “Lift Me Up,” is replete with vintage hot rod and fight sequences.

The single features Justin performing together with Butcher Babies‘ Carla HarveyElana Justin explains: “the song is about realizing that you can’t find validation through other people.  It’s easy to fall into the trap of avoidance, and trying to distract yourself from the growth you require by looking for love in all the wrong places. Facing inward can be truly difficult, but through that journey you find empowerment.”
Carla Harvey (Butcher Babies) concurs stating “I love collaborating with strong women on projects so when I was asked to add my vocals to “Lift Me Up,” I happily obliged. The result…an infectious tune, and a new found friendship!”
