ForPlay is the first EP by American indie rock band Saint Motel. The album had a music video for every song that was also included on the CD itself.[1]

"Dear Dictator" was featured in HBO's 2013 trailer for Boardwalk Empire.

Critical reception[edit]

Jim Fusilli of the Wall Street Journal labeled the music as "garage-glam"[2] and Drew Kennedy from BMI wrote "Saint Motel demonstrates their unique ability to seamlessly intertwine melody with melodrama without diminishing the power of either."[3]
