What people say about Hotels:
TIME OUT NEW YORK – Hotels fuse elements of new wave, goth, and surf so seamlessly that genre tags will be the last thing on your mind when you hear their bittersweet, atmospheric pop songs.
POPMATTERS – With a taste for the cinematic, Hotels come off like the ultimate ‘80s soundtrack band, something akin to a cross between the dreamy haze of M83 and the angsty garage rock of The Strokes.
DJ KEVIN COLE of KEXP SEATTLE – It’s a lot of things that are familiar, but put together in a way I’ve never heard before.
If John Carpenter and John Hughes made a movie together, Hotels would be the soundtrack. Founded in New York in 2003 by composer and bassist Blake Madden, Hotels lives in pop’s dark corners, with post-punk roots giving way to flower petals of psych, jazz noir, electro, and surf. Like the ethereal wash and haze of AIR, Cocteau Twins, or M83; the dry lyrics and odd melodies of DEVO, The Monochrome Set, and Stereolab; the driving rhythms and grumbling bass of Joy Division? You’ll like Hotels.
