“This is your one shot, time for your ace in the hole.”
Saint Motel surprised me by dropping another new single and it’s just as captivating as “My Type” was earlier this year. It’s also going to be packaged with that wonderful ditty in a 7″ release which is available on their website. You’ll be hard pressed to find two tracks that are worth more of your time and precious earspace than these.
“Ace In The Hole” follows the narrative of the girl who is so good she is impossible to get, so your typical hooks, lines, and sinkers are all rebuffed or refused and you must turn to the “ace in the hole”. The brass that buttresses all of these amazing Saint Motel tracks makes another standout appearance here, while on the whole this track is more lounge-like than “My Type”. For me, the new single is effortlessly catchy, a gentle waltz through the ups and downs of the prospects of dating in beautiful contrast with the willy-nilly style of “My Type”.
As stated above, you can grab the 7″ on Saint Motel’s website. Enjoy!
