The breakout track, “My Type” by Saint Motel may be part of EA Sports’ FIFA 15 soundtrack, but the track is more than just a sports anthem. The blaring horns, upbeat tempo and catchy lyrics are accompanied by a video that is full on 70s. The Los Angeles-based band has been on a steady rise since releasing their debut album, “Voyeur” in 2012. Playing SXSW shortly after its release, Saint Motel toured in support of the album with notable acts such as, Arctic Monkeys, Imagine Dragons and Weezer.
With the EP, “My Type” released, Saint Motel is currently on the road in support of the collection and are working towards their sophomore release, slated for this year. B-Sides host, Pete Mar, caught up with the band during their San Francisco stop to talk about the success of “My Type”, how EA Sports got involved, touring and more.
