First Thoughts Review:
You can instantly here that Motel Sundown are all about crystal clear vocals and layers of harmonies. 'Light Of My Life' has an overall sound that puts me in mind of 'Paper Roses' by Marie Osmond with the whole band of brothers harmonising in the background yet Motel Sundown are a trio. Its a big sound. Traditional country brought bang up to date. I strongly suggest taking the time to check this song out then adding it to your music library.
'Light Of My Life' was released on all platforms on Friday 8th May.
Motel Sundown are a three piece band based in Liverpool. Their influences range from Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles to Dolly Parton and Neil Young.
With rich, earthy harmonies their music is a unique blend of Americana, Country and Folk Rock.
Meeting as three songwriters in Liverpool in 2016, the band formed in 2018 and have been writing and playing together ever since. Naomi and Karen are from the same town in Co. Tyrone whilst Rob hails from London.
In the previous year Motel Sundown have performed at Melodica Festival (Reykjavik), Country on the Coast (Portsmouth), started their own regular country night ‘The Grand Opry Sessions’ (Liverpool), and more recently, supported American Singer/Songwriter Alice Walker at the renowned Grateful Fred Sessions (Southport) and Bobby West at Jimmy's, Liverpool.
Chicago’ was the band’s debut single, released on December 18th 2019, which was accompanied with a tour across Ireland and the UK.
