Introduce yourselves to What’s Your Rupture?‘s new signees Savoy Motel, made up from members of Cheap Time & Heavy Cream that specialize in bringing you all those funky & fun retro riffs that you revere already from your well thumbed record cubbies. With a listen to their debut single “Souvenir Shop Rock”, the band brings you something to remember them by with addictive chord progressions and whispy vocals that wrap about like the comforts of a spring summer breeze that carries on into the dawn of the new sunny season.

The Savoy Motel gang of Jeffrey Novak and Jessica McFarland from Cheap Time, coupled with Mimi Galbierz and Dillon Watson of Heavy Cream adhere to the alternate histories and traces of influence brought about by yesterday’s mythic rebels & renegades of rock. Abiding by the fuzzy riff regimented radical aspects of vintage counter-culture nuggets mined from the junkshops and second-hand stores; Savoy Motel make up musical morsels that that deliver time capsule souvenirs from the today to be further discovered by future progeny and the nu-tribes of tomorrow’s hedonists.

Also from Nashville’s newest & neatest freaks Savoy Motel, don’t miss the video for “Hot One” that features the band decked out in the darnedist 60s & 70s styles to match their own AM radio admiring panache for making fun & odd sounds.

Savoy Motel took a quick moment to share with us the following succinct thoughts on the founding of the band, how their experiences from Cheap Time & Heavy Cream have impacted their current sounds, and what we can expect next:

We were shooting for the opposite of what we had already achieved in our previous groups, and we wanted to embrace everything we love about twentieth century music that none of us had able to tap into before individually.
