Off the heels of their first vinyl release, 7″1, Los Angeles-based indie pop quartet Saint Motel are pleased to announce their upcoming national headline tour. Kicking off in San Diego on February 8th, the band will embark on their spring tour culminating at SXSW. A full list of dates is below.
To celebrate the trip, the band has made the stems from both songs on 7″1 available to all at http://www.saintmotel.com/remixes/ for your remixing pleasure, and dropped their latest offering, an energy filled remix of their most recent single “At Least I Have Nothing” from crime capitalists Junk.
With sophisticated savvy and singularity, the Los Angeles quartet Saint Motel has built a formidable reputation for itself on the back of inventive indie pop and wildly fun live shows. Mixing blistering pep with unique flair and a knack for rousing rhythms, Saint Motel’s upbeat, aural catharsis is pure bliss with a twist of cynical humor subversive and sincere.
With thematic twists and turns, stories reveal themselves lyrically through a narrative lens of understanding and universal truth. With such honest motifs strung together by tongue-in-cheek notions, delivered with such charm, the band’s intentions are often left open to interpretation. And so, what might be easily perceived as sexy with one listen, with another might seem mean-spirited or flatly perverse. That is the flair of Saint Motel’s rapturous pop and the graceful dichotomy of its existence.
