“Each of their songs announces itself with a flourish and no little élan, and there’s a light sprinkling of Caribbean rhythms, tropical flavours and lounge-jazziness throughout.” – The Guardian
Already a growing proposition in the States where they’ve played shows with the likes of Arctic Monkeys and Imagine Dragons, the Los Angeles quartet Saint Motel are making a strong impression with their debut Parlophone track and first Top 40 single ‘My Type’. A record Track of the Day at Radio 1 and Record of the Week at Radio 2, it’s also been playlisted at Radio 2 (A list), Radio 1 (B list), XFM (Daytime list) and Absolute (B list).
‘My Type’ is an exuberant collision of gorgeous tropical horns and percussion, suave indie style and frontman A/J Jackson’s velveteen croon. Recalling the glam flair of the Seventies with elements of retro power-pop, Saint Motel also possess a tongue-in-cheek twist on cynicism and irony that reflects their status as a Los Angeles band influenced by British culture.
The single is the first new song that the quartet have issued ahead of their upcoming EP which will be their first full UK release. Having recently introduced themselves to British audiences with London show at Club NME and The Lexington, they’ll return to these shores in November for a full UK tour, stopping at The Institute Birmingham on Friday 7th November 2014.
