NOLA’s Motel Radio Announce Debut LP ‘Siesta Del Sol’ Out 7/12

Today, New Orleans’ indie-folk four piece band Motel Radio announced their debut album Siesta Del Sol due out July 12. Alongside the announcement, the band released lead single, “Midnight” via a lyric video withGhettoblaster Magazine. The track blends indie folk melodies and 60s era drum beats for an earnest yet tongue in cheek love song.

Listen “Midnight” HERE.

Explaining how the final song came together, frontman Ian Wellman says, “Midnight is about the intense desire to be around someone you’re falling in love with. It’s about orbiting someone just to bask in their glow, even if it puts you in situations you don’t want to be in. It’s about the jealousy you experience when you can’t have someone to yourself.
