Motel 7 have yet to release a single which I have not fallen in love with. At this rate, it seems the LA-based duo will become a household name in a very short space of time. ‘Things I Hate’ is an introspective dive into the LA nightlife scene, with a distinct blend of rock and hip-hop that is really quite beautiful to experience.
“The concept of the song is kind of an ode to LA nightlife. An ode that in a way shits on LA’s occasional bad reputation with going out, partying, drug use, and any bad temptations that occur while doing so. We all have been there at some point I’m sure. Many people would easily repeat it all over again the next day, or next weekend. You see that a lot in LA, NY, Miami, or wherever nightlife culture is a big thing. It can be hard to avoid it.”
