Motel Raphaël is a young indie-folk-pop band from Montreal, led by Clara Legault, Emily Skahan and Maya Malkin. Since their inception in 2012, they have risen through the ranks of Montreal’s burgeoning indie scene at an astronomical pace.
And now for some wise words:
“Motel Raphaēl are the most exciting band to come out of Montreal since Arcade Fire.” – GQ Magazine UK
“These sweethearts embody what it means to be from Montreal, not only because they are a group of strong, idol-worthy women, but because they represent the city in such a distinct way. The way they layer their voices to make them more than just mere harmonies, but three distinct voices, says something about the uniqueness of this Montreal cultural hub, showcasing all the their differences while highlighting how well they all mesh together.” Vice Magazine / Noisey
