Tearing out of Bath in 2015 with a tank full of towering tunes and their eyes on the Great Blue Yonder, Pink Hotel are a glorious anachronism – a very British band with the heart and soul of stadium Americana legends. A string of low-key single releases throughout ‘16 and ’17 recalling The Gaslight Anthem, The War On Drugs, Springsteen and early Radiohead – ‘She Doesn’t Know’, brooding epic ‘Modern Times’ and the riotous ‘Miracle’ – have brought them to the attention of BBC Introducing, Clash and NME and the buzz around hits-in-waiting ‘Neon Clouds’ and ‘Show Me Heaven’ is reaching fever pitch. Pink Hotel is a five star rock’n’roll joint; check in time is now.
"Pairing gigantic riffs and heartfelt lyrics on their soaring material thus far, Pink Hotel possess the intensity and intrigue that few can match." NME
"Inspirations such as Bruce Springsteen, Led Zeppelin and Jack White are clear from the start, though they've updated the Zep's trademark riffs and Springsteen heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics into melodic and timeless rock for the 21st century crowd." NME
"The mightiest Americana rock heroes, dish up a The Gaslight Anthem meets The War on Drugs riff pop brainstormer" NME
"Pink Hotel fuse scorching rock 'n' roll with just a slice of soul" - Clash Music Magazine
"They're ready for the O2 arena tomorrow, and they'd fill the atmosphere" -
"Stadium ready sound, absolutely massive choruses. It's bloody good guitar music" Gigslutz
"This is what music is supposed to do..take you from here to there . Thank goodness for Pink Hotel!" - Jeff Laufer @ Rock Bands of LA
"The incomparable epic Americana brilliance of Pink Hotel" - Mark Beaumont ( NME & The Guardian )
' Pink Hotel are a UK rock band that threaten to break the mould with their new breed of old school rock music. Live the band embody the soul and vigour of the greats giving a nod to the likes of Springsteen, the Stones, Tom Petty etc. Yet on record it feels like you're being taken into the unknown - a must see for fans of the old and new alike. For fans of the contemporary comparisons to The War on Drugs, Cold War Kids, Foo Fighters or The Gaslight Anthem may seem more appropriate. Based in London the band is made up of three school friends that through a mutual love of the greats decided to start a band. Following Glastonbury & Great Escape performances over the last few years and a tour of the U S A the band is set to record their debut album. Lyrically Lead singer Gotley wears his heart on his sleeve, crafting road trip anthems with soaring hooks that will be buzzing round your head for days after. One to watch out for in 2018. '
