Migrant Motel - Sweat

Alternative Rock duo Migrant Motel combines modern rock sounds with contemporary production techniques into a blend that is unique yet familiar. They have steadily released music since 2017, with 10 singles and an album in their catalog so far. The band has started making in-roads into the growing Blended Cultural youth movement in North America.

Tapped as the future of Bi-Lingual Rock by Rolling Stone, they will be making a headlining appearance on the BMI stage at the 30th anniversary Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago on Thursday, July 29. To bolster that appearance, they are releasing new single and video Sweat today, July 23.

On making this big leap career-wise with the featured performance at Lollapalooza, the band's Chava Ilizaliturri says "Getting asked to play Lolla this year is absolutely insane! It'll be our first time at a big festival and to be given the opportunity to close the BMI stage on the first day - let alone play at all, is an incredible honor. It feels like we've been building the history of Migrant Motel for a while and now is the first time it's mixing in with the history of Rock N' Roll. From now on, we'll always be on the bill for the 1st Lollapalooza after Covid… It's a dream come true". 

In speaking about the inspiration for new track Sweat, MM's David Stewart, Jr. explains "This song is honestly just about feeling bad ass; everything from the groove, the lyrics, the production - it's all focused on making the listener feel like they're on top of the world. We wanted to give a feeling of being "untouchable": Having complete dominion over a situation, leading us to cheekily say 'C'mon, AT LEAST make me sweat while I beat you!'"
