NOLA’s Motel Radio Unveil Wistful “M.I.A.” Video | Debut LP Out Friday | Nat’l Tour

Today, New Orleans’ beachy indie-Americana band Motel Radio have unveiled their latest single “M.I.A.” accompanied by a video, premiered with Substream Magazine. The wistful track is fresh off their debut LP Siesta Del Sol, due out this Friday. Backed by the sounds of a sorrowful guitar, dual vocal harmonies sweep across the slow tempo track as they reflect on the burden distance places on relationships. Frontman Winston Triolo says, “Itʼs is a story about absence. For me, it’s a reminder to be a better companion.

Watch “M.I.A” HERE.

Breezy yet intentional, pop-minded yet psychedelic; their new album title was inspired by a jukebox song the band heard at a bar in Marfa. Siesta Del Solwas written and recorded with producer and engineer Eric Heigle at Wix Mix Productions and the band’s home studio in New Orleans. Motel Radio draws inspiration from the nostalgic sound of their home city while adding a distinctive indie flair. In support of the dynamic 10 song LP, the band will kick off a 5-week summer tour with Summer Salt on July 13. Full list of tour dates below and here.
