Savoy Motel is heavily steeped in a ’70s nostalgia with an intensely orchestrated hybrid of glam rock, soul, southern boogie, and showmanship, but they channel the decade through the lens of the early ’90s combining the aloof irreverence of Royal Trux and the swagger of Beck’s Midnite Vultures.

Their debut self-titled album was released in 2016 by notable New York indie label What’s Your Rupture? and led to national touring gigs opening for The Dandy Warhols and The Lemon Twigs. With rhythms of clockwork precision in each song, this Nashville-based quartet features the interplay of three lead vocalists combined with intense fuzz guitar, mastering what Consequence of Sound calls “a style of funky rock that feels somehow detached from the reality of the present, or really any reality at all. It’s slick yet shambolic, grooving yet kooky.”

ALSO: DJ Baby Donut (Allison Wolfe of Bratmobile!)
