We love bands like the Killers, The Cure, Bruce Springsteen, Steve Nicks, Bryan Ferry and The Knife.
We aim to make classic songs that can be played anywhere. Imagine driving late at night, with a cigarette in one hand feeling like you can go anywhere. We love the sense of being somewhere else, somewhere free from any cares, call us dreamers if you like. We are passionate about what we write, and not afraid to be different.

Marika started the band, firstly writing and performing on her own, then followed the occasional 'power suit dancers' but then she got lonely, and needed others to share and work with.

Oliver came to hear about Hotel Motel through his video director brother who brought him along to a show, he soon joined as co-producer/guitarist. Very soon followed Jorja, we met on and soon became synth and sax player. Now we have all the ingredients, the Hotel Motel sound is starting to take shape, and keeps growing stronger.

We perform as a three peice, but now for live shows we are searching for a great drummer to give our sound an extra kick!
