Conflicting Motive is a DIY rock band that blends alternative rock, pop punk, and prog genres, based in Central Florida. Members include Zach Cabral (lead vocals, guitar), Cayse McRee (Bass), JP Foronda (vocals, piano, sax), and Doug Charles (Drums)

Conflicting Motive joins together years of experience in jazz, metal, emo, and rock for a complex and mesmerizing DIY sound that is not defined by the bounds of a single genre. Lyrics range from nostalgic emo to the ethereal and philosophical.

In April 2019, Conflicting Motive released two EPs, SOLAR and LUNAR representing the evolution and diverse characteristics of their sound. In SOLAR, rock, punk, and emo collide into songs about love, heartache, and dismay. Meanwhile LUNAR highlights the band’s newer songs shine with a focus on the philosophical and experimental.

The band is working on new music in preparation for their first full-length LP.
