rock out to post-punk band crashing hotels’ haunting album ‘exploration exploitation’

April 9, 2018

Fluttering synths, jagged guitars, and stripped down indie dance beats anchor Ao Anderson’s haunted vocals on Crashing Hotels’ irresistible new record. It’s a record that’s at once minimal and expansive, with tight riffs and wide open ambiances. On the band’s best tracks, they keep the party moving, riding tension before it feels like snapping. “Never More” and “Hardcore Cherokee,” feature Anderson’s strongest hooks and a subtle build that threatens to explode out of the band’s focused drive. This is post-punk as it was meant to be.
