Silver Motel’s sunny, ’60s-influenced indie pop is perfect for summer traveling and going out with the pool. The task began with vocalist/keyboardist Greta Morgan (the Hush Sound) in summer months 2009, who journeyed from LA to her indigenous Chicago to record an record with guitarist/vocalist Dan Duszynski (THAT IS Me Smiling) and understood her songs had been well-suited to a complete music group. That fall she recruited Duszynski’s bandmates, bassist Matt Minx and drummer Adam Coldhouse, plus guitarist Eric Hehr (the Yearbooks), and by the finish of the entire year the completely formed Silver Motel performed their initial show, celebrating the discharge of their self-titled debut EP. They came back in June 2010 using their initial full-length, Summer Home, followed quickly thereafter with the Speaking Fiction 7″, getting “hot new music group” cred from SPIN mag because of their exuberant melodies and restricted hooks. Yellow metal Motel logged plenty of time on the highway in 2011, writing the stage with Hellogoodbye, Alright GO, and Cool War Children, and executing at South by Southwest and Lollapalooza, obtaining press in magazines like the LA Moments, Billboard, and Substitute Press along the way. By Sept, the band started focusing on their sophomore record at Duszynski’s house studio room, culminating in the youngsters- and nostalgia-themed, self-titled record that came July 2012 on the Good as Yellow metal imprint via Thirty Tigers.
