When I listen to dead motel, I hear a myriad of beautiful sounds, layers, and emotions. It’s the kind of music you can listen to while you’re driving or roaming about your home or when you’re having a self-care day. In other words, it’s music where any time is an excellent time to listen.
dead motel is a recording project of Maxwell Getz. Playing in bands since middle school, Maxwell spent time after high school touring around the U.S. and Canada. Always drawn to electronic music, dead motel finally took shape in the spring of 2021.
Fusing genre, emotion, and eclectic influence, Maxwell has produced an EP and full-length record, both set to be released this year. Maxwell enjoys creating music that he genuinely loves, and it really shows in his sound.
It’s feel good. It’s dreamy. It transports you to your own world, and I’ve enjoyed listening to all he’s released so far. Maxwell shared that his upcoming EP will have a more dancey feel than what he has previously released. So, if you’re a fan of feel-good vibes, make sure you have a listen once it comes out.
I had the chance to connect with dead motel in his home studio to discuss his music and what he’s currently working on. Tune in below.
