Savoy Motel (Cheap Time, Heavy Cream) signed to What’s Your Rupture, reissuing debut 7″ (listen), touring
Nashville's Savoy Motel are a fairly new band that features a few members you might know. It's co-fronted by Jeffrey Novak of Cheap Time and Jessica McFarland of Heavy Cream, with her onetime bandmates and Mimi Galbierz and Dillon Watson rounding out the lineup. With help from a vintage Maestro Rhythm King drum machine, Savoy Motel have created a weird sonic world that has one foot in glittery glam, and the other in minimal, twitchy postpunk.
Savoy Motel released their nervy debut 7", "Hot One," in 2015, which was backed with the groovy "Souvenir Shop Rock." If you missed it, it may have been because only 50 copies were pressed. The band have just signed with What's Your Rupture who will reissue that 7" later this year. Both sides are killer, and you can watch the video for "Hot One" and stream the flip below.
Savoy Motel will be touring this month, playing Union Pool on June 17 with Nude Beach and Cheena. Tickets are on sale.
