saintmotelmainSaint Motel make their music a visual experience, literally.  The band (A/J Jackson on vocals and guitar, A Sharp on guitar, Greg Erwin on drums and Dak on bass) originally met in film school so their songs have a flair for the dramatic.  Their sound isn’t easy to describe and that’s okay with the band. Blending rock and pop stylings with raw energy and enthusiastic experimentation the songs leave a lasting impression.

Their latest release, ForPlay, was released in September and each song is accompanied by a video for each song.  The band tries to incorporate this cinematic element into their live show as well.  During a recent residency at L.A.s Spaceland the band concocted themes for each night including Science Fiction, Erotic, and Slasher.

The band is in NYC this week for their CMJ showcase.  Lead singer A/J recently took some time to talk to us about Saint Motel, their unique take on music and the perfect recipe for getting a song out of your head…
