BAND CRUSH: GOLD MOTEL
check in to some sundrenched california-inspired power pop.
Chalk it up to the Vitamin D surge that occurred when Salpeter temporarily moved to L.A. after The Hush Sound went on hiatus, but Gold Motel specializes in the kind of music that makes us long for lazy beach days and drives with the windows down. In other words, it's total sunshine dreaming.
Their debut album, the aptly titled Summer House, is filled with breezy, bouncy tracks like "Perfect In My Mind" and "We're On The Run" that have strummy guitar riffs, Rilo Kiley-esque melodies, and a refreshingly exuberant vibe. It may only be April, but we've already found our summer soundtrack.
