Los Angeles dreampop quartet Saint Motel caught fire recently with their 2014 EP My Type, catapulting the band into indie fandom in a way their debut album several years later had not.
For my type, the ’60s-tinged band adopted mod iconography for singles “My Type” and “Cold, Cold Man,” demonstrating a sense of style and fun. The instincts that guided the band into adopting the flavor served them well as they are poised to release their second full-length album saintmotelevision on Oct. 21.
The day prior to that record release, Saint Motel visit the 9:30 Club on Thursday, Oct. 20 as a stop on their current US tour, and Parklife DC is giving away a pair of tickets for you to go see the show.
First, watch the devilishly clever official music video for “My Type” by Saint Motel on YouTube, which manages to get you involved by the end:
