Got a new song from Los Angeles alternative band Saint Motel. The song, “Honest Feedback”, has an interesting story behind it that I will let the band explain:
The song itself was something we had been kicking back and forth for a while. Kind of has retro sock-hop-pop vibes that we really love and it’s fun to get loose to this song on stage.
The lyrical idea kind of happened by accident. In the writing phase, I was just singing gibberish lyrics to get the melody down. But I kept on saying something that sounded like “honest feedback”. When it was time to actually sit down and write the lyrics I was thinking, ‘I should probably change the lyric because no one likes to hear honest feedback,’ but then I thought, ‘that is actually pretty fucking cool.’ So we decided to just dive into a pretty taboo subject. Probably not the kind of subject matter you’ll be hearing in shampoo commercials but at least it’s keeping us entertained haha
Stream and download (for a limited time only) “Honest Feedback”.
