Motel Thieves – Interview

Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (

PD: What type of artist are you?

MT: We’re a hardcore metal band who wear bright clothes. Just joking, we’re an indie band called Motel Thieves.


PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.

MT: We met towards the end of Summer 2018. We released a single back in June called Stitches. It’s cool, you should check it out!


PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?

MT: Musically we’re trying to find a sound that suits us best. We take influence from large artists like Arctic Monkeys & The Strokes, but as of recent we’ve taken influence from upcoming artists like The Magic Gang & Sports Team. Non-Musically, not too sure! Maybe cherry coke.


PD: What are your dreams and goals?

MT: To get more friends. COME TO OUR GIGS PLEASE!


PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?

MT: Our frontman, Callum writes the lyrics. Stitches is about a walk into a stereotypical night out for a youngster whilst being under the influence of drink and sociability. The song also ties into some personal experiences.

MT: Social media


PD: What do you think about downloading music online?

MT: That’s a secret


PD: What is your proudest moment in music?
