The Burning Motels - Novels Drops
orged under the inspiration of post-punk and angular melodies, the Burning
Hotels cut through modern rock with driving sounds and propulsive rhythms.
The band made their recording debut with a self-released EP titled Eighty
Five Mirrors, licensed by Razor & Tie. This EP won the Fort Worth Weekly's
Album of the Year and 3 of the Top 10 Songs of the Decade. Today, the
Burning Hotels will release their debut full-length LP, Novels, mmixed by
Mark Needham (The Killers, Bloc Party).
The Burning Hotels was a mutual project of Chance Morgan (vocals, guitar),
Matt Mooty (vocals, guitar) and Wyatt Adams (drums), as the three began
forming their ideas in the attic of a garage on a desolate farm. Following
the addition of Marley Whistler (bass), the Burning Hotels were finally
christened as a working band. The group has all of the pieces for indie-rock
stardom in place. Described by the FW Weekly as "One of town's coolest bands
period," they create a driving sound, strongly founded on dark thoughts,
dynamic rhythms, youth and, of course, the hipster look that's all together.
