The Motels Biography (Wikipedia)

The Motels are a new wave band from the Los Angeles area best known for "Only the Lonely" and "Suddenly Last Summer"---each of which peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, in 1982 and 1983, respectively. In 1980, their song "Total Control" reached No. 4 on the Australian chart, and "Danger" reached No. 15 on the French chart.

Martha Davis (born January 19, 1951), the lead singer, reformed a version of the band called "The Motels featuring Martha Davis" in 1998 and toured as such with various line-ups of musicians.

In 2013, the band was rebranded with a permanent name, Martha Davis and The Motels. That band is touring the world with a line-up of musicians that have been playing with Davis for over 10 years, longer than the original Motels.
