Seattle-based sci-fi pop band Hotels are back with a brilliant new single. 'The Bat Watusi' is a pace-quickening taster of the delights in store on Hotels’ new album, On The Casino Floor. The noir-punk track is Hotels at their most lithe and propulsive, with an insistent rhythm section, sci-fi synths and unashamedly rocking guitars. The song repeatedly strips itself back to a muscular yet dreamy core, only to build into a tight celestial rock frenzy.
On The Casino Floor is out on the 23rd of Feb, 2011. Stay tuned for pre-order info.
A man after my own heart, this guy has been doing his thing solo for a long time, making beautiful, forward-thinking, constantly evolving pop music. Interesting production on everything he's done. Hotels
