Motel Carnation bring sleazy, off-kilter electronic indie from the grubby club floors of Newcastle Upon Tyne. They’re blend of witty lyricism, artful genre-straddling and their dual frontman makeup mark them out as a fresh voice from the burgeoning Newcastle music scene.

In the 2 years the trio have been together they have received airplay on BBC 6 Music & BBC Tees, Amazing Radio UK & US as well as a live session for BBC Introducing In The North East. The band were selected as one of 10 artists to be BBCintroducing In The NorthEast’s Tips For 2021, earning them regular airplay on BBC Newcastle. Motel have also seen streaming success, being included in Spotify’s “Hot New Bands”, “Fresh Finds” and “Students Union” editorial playlists.

Their fierce and frenetic live show cements them as the full package. They have sold out every hometown headliner they have played as well as sharing bills with Broken Hands, Dylan Cartlidge & Zela. The were also booked to support Oscar Lang as part of Abbie Mccarthy’s Good Karma Club pre-pandemic but, unwilling to slow down whilst in Isolation, the band worked on a self-produced cover of “Live Forever" by Oasis, the track was met with incredible reception and acclaim from radio and press, being chosen as “Track Of The Week” by Spotlight UK.

They have played numerous North East festivals as well as recently selling out their leg of the “Right Here” tour which saw them rotate headliners across Newcastle, Sunderland and Middlesborough with Marketplace and NoYou. They also made their London debut at the Amersham Arms in 2020, earning them a stronghold of fans in the capitol.
