KINO MOTEL is the Melbourne-based ‘beach goth’ project from Ed Fraser (Heads. /Cash Savage and the Last Drinks) and Rosa Mercedes (Albertine Sarges /Josephine Foster). After meeting in a commune in Berlin, the duo deserted together and hit the road. Following a grimy and particularly sweaty basement karaoke session somewhere in Vietnam in 2019, KINO MOTEL was created – named for the bar in which it was conceived, KINO MOTEL listeners can expect dusty melancholic gritty pop. Lots of oil and sand and road ahead.
