HIGHLIGHTS Playful and smart, quietly surreal and unguardedly romantic, Model Shop (Seattle, Washington) evoke the soundtrack to a lost John Hughes film.

With touchstones in 80s college rock, 90s alternative, and indiepop of a more recent vintage, they create guitar pop with shaggy hooks and well-coiffed harmonies.

Model Shop combine sparkling melodies, iridescent harmonies, and breezy, wistful guitars in their new album "Love Interest".

DESCRIPTION Rising from Seattle's indie pop and rock scenes in 2019, Model Shop was the natural next step for longtime friends and bandmates Kevin Emerson and Ethan Jones, who played together in indie pop darlings Math and Physics Club.

Over the years, they had crossed paths with bassist Jen Fox, and bonded over their love of melodic, effervescent pop music.

After playing their first shows just before the pandemic, the band tracked their debut LP, Love Interest, mostly in their separate rooms, before coming together to finish vocals and mix with Martin Feveyear in the fall of 2021.

Combining sparkling melodies, iridescent harmonies, and breezy, wistful guitars, Model Shop's tightly crafted pop songs frame modern stories of love and longing through a nostalgic lens, evoking lush summer drives and luminous city nights.
