Los Angeles quartet Saint Motel is not an easy band to pin down. Indie pop quirks blended with a surge of art school world music and strident horns. All of which gets twisted through a sardonic examination of L.A. life. The first single is "My Type," a collision of influences embedded in an immediate pop hook which might be described as TropiCali. The idea for the song came from an argument with singer A/J Jackson's girlfriend, who half-joked that his type was, “every woman alive”. “I thought it was hilarious,” Jackson reminisces. “and probably spot on for most red-blooded men.”
