Saint Motel Plays Mercury Lounge Tonight

July 27th, 2012

AJ Jackson (vocals and guitar), Aaron Sharp (guitar), Dak (bass) and Greg Erwin (drums) met at Chapman University in Southern California and formed the dream-pop outfit Saint Motel in 2007. Their first album, the EP Forplay, came out in 2010, but they’ve recently followed that up with their debut LP, Voyeur, which was released earlier this month (stream it below). The disc is filled with upbeat pop music that will have you nodding along without even realizing it. But Saint Motel (above, playing “Puzzle Pieces” for breakthruradio.com) is as equally concerned with sights as sounds, featuring artistic videos for the majority of their songs plus some interesting stage setups. And you can see them tonight at Mercury Lounge.
