Saint Motel – [My Type]

Saint Motel - My Type

Saint Motel are just My Type from Los Angeles, California

Saint Motel – My Type:

Please put out your elongated cigarette, grab your darling, and take her to the ballroom dance floor for this one. Saint Motel have done it again, and with all the throwback swagger that we have come to know and love from the promising L.A based hard-pop/indie rock outfit. So with their latest tune My Type one could say these guys are “brass in action” and ready to show the world that with a kick in your step and smile on your face, anything is possible.

Saint Motel clearly showed everyone on their debut album Voyeur that, indeed, anything is quite possible. I mean every single damn track off their debut is a solid piece of serenity in and of itself. Voyeur has earned a permanent place in my heart for being both sincere and original through and through. I mean I could really listen to their first single Puzzle Pieces on repeat for hours, and I’m being serious. I’d probably be happy to do the same with a number of other songs off Voyeur. I can not recommend enough giving the time and day to this wonderful composition of music. Saint Motel’s newest song My Type shows that the band is headed in a similar and exciting direction leaving me absolutely eager for more. If anything the song is a heaping hunk of optimism for what is to come.

Saint Motel – [Puzzle Pieces] + [At Least I have Nothing]

Saint Motel

Saint Motel bring us their explosive indie pop from Los Angeles, California

Saint Motel – Puzzle Pieces

Talk about feel good music! Saint Motel take excitement and crank it way up the dial to maximum joy. Their music is apparently described has hard pop and progressive indie, and regardless of what those genres really mean I am 100% sold. Personally I’m all about that indie rock that can force me to smile and move along, but I can assure you that Saint Motel can most definitely do both of those things to me. Puzzle Pieces makes me smile within seconds with that addicting and lovely piano loop. Just as soon as my smile fully forms the song jumps right into those wonderful steel guitars that cause my toes to twitch. Now with a huge grin upon my face, and a steady tapping of my left foot going, I’m then forced to sing along to that ridiculously catchy chorus line. The way I describe listening to this song may sound something like being possessed by a dancing ghost, but I openly welcome that musical phantom if its in the form of Saint Motel’s joyous mood elevating melodies. I can’t recommend enough looking more into these guys and I’m sure news of their new album is just around the corner.
