The Truth: Park Hotel are a post-electronic dance band based in London. Centred on the creative duo of Tim Abbey and Rebeca Marcos-Rosa they explore the mirrorball-noir territory between alternative arena electronica and wired downtown songwriting. ‘Gone As A Friend’ is their frankly terrific debut, laced as it is with supercool boy / girl vocals and a lovely supple groove.
Live their metropolitan disco-rock studio incarnation expands into a steamroller six piece neo-funk band, featuring three-way vocal harmonies, two guitars, drums, percussion, keyboards and ample cowbell. We think it’s like some joyfully communal face-off between LCD Soundsystem and Earth, Wind & Fire with flashes of Steely Dan and even It’s Immaterial, and by gum we’re not wrong.
Park Hotel first entered a recording studio in 2016 to work with producer Eliot James on two tracks 'Gone As A Friend' and 'Going West', handing them over for mixing to Nathan Boddy and mastering at New York's Sterling Sound. After playing a series of feverishly received under-the-radar London shows in Autumn 2016 the band felt ready to go public with a first release, scheduling 'Gone As A Friend' for February 3rd. An album of immaculate dance-craft waits in the wings. Reserve rooms early for 2017.
Park Hotel hereby become the 12th and indeed final release as part of the fierce panda singles club of 2016 / 17ish, following the hearty likes of Alphaduka, Coquin Migale, Cavalry, Chalk, HUSH!, 485C, White Giant, Affairs, A Lily, Joey Fourr and National Service and supported by the casual provenance of Arts Council England.
