To release new single “Living In The Moment” + Live EP
Listen: Mars Motel
(New York, NY) In establishing Mars Motel, songwriter Sarik Kumar had to stumble on the past to find the future. In 2016, he visited his childhood home in Long Island and rediscovered a series of psychedelic, Brit-Pop inspired bedroom demos written during his last year of high school.
Although Kumar was already a member of buzzy rock group Twin Wave, he decided it was time to step out on his own buoyed by the inspirations of his younger self. Now, Mars Motel is gearing up to release the last in a string of singles, “Living In The Moment,” along with a live EP, The Eclipse Sessions.
Joined by Wesley Wynne (guitars), Justin Lieberthal (bass) and Craig Stauber (drums), Mars Motel formally entered the world in early 2017 as their expansive dream-rock soundscapes have earned them acclaim in the live scene in NYC and streaming success with their single “Green.”
On “Living In The Moment,” Kumar shares, “It’s a song about youth and independence, and the lyrics touch upon the time when one leaves home and goes out into the world. But upon returning, the place you once remembered and loved so much somehow feels different and unfamiliar.”
