Effortlessly cool, the Dylan Carver directed visuals of "Western Version Boogie" shows off its seventies influence confidently. It's a fun, glittery video, out to have a good time without worrying about the consequences.
The single is taken from the band's self-titled debut album, released last October.
Formed two years ago, Savoy Motel "use rock and roll as a vehicle to reach and promote the feeling of TOTAL FREEDOM," according to guitarist Dillon Watson. "Savoy Motel is defined more by a feeling than a sound. I hear this feeling in other acts too... Miles Davis, Little Richard, the Osborne Brothers, Faust, the Stones, all the best ones. And the diversity of records I knew TOTAL FREEDOM from was also encouraging to me early on in regards to the band because it made me realise what potential and widespread appeal our music could have."
"I really wanted to be doing something that combined everything I liked about 20th-century music that I hadn't been able to explore in my earlier projects," adds Jeffrey Novak (bass, vocals) on his inspiration to form Savoy Motel two years ago. "We all wanted to start this dream band, to play this sort of teenage music. We just try to keep things open and grooving, but also totally catchy in a way that makes us want to keep playing these songs for people over and over."
