New Video Tuesday: Gold Motel, Maroon 5, The Postelles

Maroon 5 are back with the first single off their upcoming September release, Hands All Over. The video for “Misery” is a bit violent and involves frontman Adam Levine’s girlfriend trying to kill him. While the new album includes guest vocals by Lady Antebellum, the band haven’t left their well-known pop sound. Watch the video below and for more on the new album, see Rolling Stone’s video interview with the band here.


A few days ago posted Gold Motel’s new music video for “Safe in L.A.” With an airy, California vibe and a distinctive Motown sound, the track is bound to get you tapping your feet along. Watch it here.

The Postelles’ latest music video for “White Night” just may make you forget the ridiculous heat we’ve been having here on the East Coast. Combining influences of 50’s doo-wop and garage rock, the band is readying the release of their debut album, co-produced with the Strokes’ guitarist Albert Hammond Jr., this October.

A recent Thursday at Maxwell’s brought music fans together for a diverse night of music. Whether you’re interested in folk, indie, or Afrobeat, there was something for everyone. For a little more than three hours, concertgoers walked into the venue, not entirely sure what to expect and left being a fan of at least one new band.

From the moment Gold Motel took the stage, the audience was captivated. The band features Greta Morgan of The Hush Sound as lead vocalist and members of This Is Me Smiling. Playing solid rock & roll, Gold Motel’s energy and music recall that of The Kinks and Beach Boys. With their killer guitar sound combined with fitting harmonies and airy lead vocals, the band quickly livened up the venue and drew fans close to the stage.
