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. ĎGone As Your Friendí is their frankly terrific debut laced as it is with supercool boy / girl vocals and a 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 itís like some joyfully communal face-off between LCD Soundsystem and Earth Wind & Fire with flashes of Steely Dan and even Itís Immaterial and by gum weíre 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.
