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 angular guitars, sober vocals, omnipresent synths, and 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.

Hotels is the moniker of composer and bassist Blake Madden. Founded in New York in 2003, Hotels runs the gamut of pop’s dark corners, with post-punk and new-wave roots giving way to flower petals of psych, jazz noir, electro, and surf. The sound may undergo a sea change from song to song, but Madden’s knack for hook-laden pop melodies is the uniting force underneath it all. Fans of AIR, The Monochrome Set, DEVO, Joy Division, The Cure, Cocteau Twins, M83, and film composers like John Barry and Eliot Goldenthal will find something of these artists in the Hotels sound.
