Gold Motel

Gold Motel

Indie Pop (Chicago)

It seems unbelievable that Gold Motel could produce the kind of sweet Pop sounds that emanate from their 2010 full length debut, Summer House, after just a year together, but that’s how it played out. In 2009, singer/songwriter Greta Morgan took a year’s worth of California experience and inspiration back to her Chicago hometown, where she collaborated with Dan Duzsynski on a solo EP that quickly evolved into Gold Motel. The band and EP debuted in December of that year, with the infectious and accomplished Summer House coming less than a year later. Gold Motel just released a new single, “Leave You in Love” (featuring the irresistible line, “We learned how to kiss from magazines...”); can a sophomore full length be far behind? The Big Time beckons.
