Hotel Lux have shared their biting new song 'Daddy' - tune in now.
The band recently went into the studio with George Murphy and Duc Peterman of London's HMLTD, aiming to steer their sound in a slightly different direction from their searing, cathartic live show.
As a result, 'Daddy' feels pared back but never restrained, adding analogue electronics to their molten guitar mixture.
Singer Lewis Duffin explains that song is linked to Portsmouth's Paulsgrove riots of 2000, commenting:
“It's a tale of barbarity, sorrow and vengeance. An attempt to step into the British realist tradition of portraying the most vulgar and distorted aspects of the communities we live in... like Clarke in Scum and Meadows with his This Is England series, for example.”
Perhaps the most succinct, defined release yet from Hotel Lux, 'Daddy' drops on May 20th. Tune in below.
