“This song was inspired by a crazy motel we stayed at in the middle of the desert,” says lead singer/guitarist Demi Demitro about “Motel #27.” “Our stay there felt like a weird fever dream. The next day Baby wrote a poem about our experience and that inspired the lyrics for this song.” The track follows the album’s lead single “Charmer And The Snake”; watch/share HERE.
Growing up in Boulder, Demitro rebelled through her guitar, practicing up to nine hours a day and neglecting schoolwork to develop a playing style that is heavy but agile, theatrical but nuanced, grounded in rock history but wholly idiosyncratic. With drummers Baby Pottersmith and Jonny Fig playing on a conjoined set, the band developed a reputation for their riotous performances. Clips of the band’s live shows and DIY videos made it back to Auerbach, who invited them to his studio in Nashville to produce Nightmare Daydream.
The album finds The Velveteers stripping down rock and roll to its most primal elements—the riff, the rhythm, the snarl—and rebuilding it in their own image. “We don’t want to sound like a band from a different time,” says Demitro. “We want to sound like a band that’s right here right now—in this very moment.”
