Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, rockers Mars Motel craft dreamy atmospheres with alt-rock edges. They’re getting ready to release a new EP, The Eclipse Sessions, and we’re pleased to bring you the premiere of the EP’s latest single, “City Streets” (listen below).
Tracked live, “City Streets,” showcases the band’s great dynamic as they build towards a fiery, guitar-solo-led crescendo.
Catch Mars Motel at Mercury Lounge in New York, NY on July 26th as they celebrate the release of the EP out the following day.
“City Streets” is a song about love and heartbreak. It was written during a time when summers felt endless, everything seemed possible, and we lived life in the fast lane without any real knowledge of who we were or who we would become. It tells the story of young love that grows apart and the sorrow of moving on.
“City Streets” is the first single from Mars Motel’s new record, The Eclipse Sessions, a five song live EP filmed and recorded on August 21, 2017 at Mission Sound during the first solar eclipse the contiguous United States saw in 38 years. The EP features three live tracks from Mars Motel’s first wave of singles and two unreleased B sides (“Hit The Floor” & “City Streets”). The Eclipse Sessions will be available on all streaming platforms, Friday, July 27, 2018.
All songs written by Sarik Kumar and performed by Sarik Kumar (Vox & Guitar), Wesley Wynne (Guitar), Jordan Lipp (Vox & Drums) & Justin Lieberthal (Bass).
The Eclipse Sessions were mixed by Tommy Eichmann, directed and edited by Shiva Kumar at Silver Arc Productions, and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music.
