THE BURNING HOTELS
Blending punk, pop and powerful rock into bouncing beats and catchy
melodies, The Burning Hotels have joined a class of modern indie-rockers
inspired by the Strokes and the Killers.
Hailing from Texas, the quartet debuted in 2007 with the independent EP
release of "Eighty Five Mirrors." Before playing this year's South by
Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas, the Burning Hotels were featured
in the 2009 film "Bandslam." This year brought the release of the band's
full-length debut, "Novels," a creative, lush and energetic guitar- and
drum-driven effort anchored by the soaring harmony vocals of Chance Morgan
and Matt Mooty.
