Motel Motel – Coffee video


Brooklyn five-piece Motel Motel is excited to reveal their brand new video for single,”Coffee,” off their Rebel Group debut, the New Denver LP, out now! Mickey Theis in the band, told the Village Voice about the making of the video in a recent interview: “Matthew [Murphy, the director] had told us that we were going to shoot it on the property of his childhood home. What he didn’t tell us is that he hadn’t cleared it with the family that is currently residing there.”

Check out Motel Motel’s video for “Coffee,” directed by Matthew Murphy, here:

Motel Motel’s blend of alt-country and raspy folk rock caught on with writers and fans almost instantly, after the band’s self-released EP started circulating this past year. New York Press, The Huffington Post, New York Post, and The L Magazine designated them as a “must-hear-band,” SPIN declared the band’s single, “Coffee,” a “Song You Must Hear Now!” and BrooklynVegan proclaimed a “willingness to gamble it all on these five gifted musicians.” Wired also did a feature on the band’s DIY ethics.

After a set of Paste/WOXY-presented New England dates with Roman Candle, a performance at the Gothamist showcase at the Northside Festival, a sold-out Bowery Ballroom show with the Harlem Shakes and a recent Baeble Guest Apartment Session & interview, the band now prepares for an upcoming tour of Egypt, where they will do a cultural exchange, several performances, and youth music workshops. Stay tuned for more US and UK tour dates!

…and if you missed it the first time around, the mp3 DL for “Coffee.”
