I’m a bit late on this, but I wanted to let everyone know that The Ross Sea Party have finally released their debut Hotel Pool and you most definitely need to go out of your way to check it out. I’ve spent the last couple of days with it and I’ve been enjoying it, so I wanted to repost what I said about the lead single “Thunder” and some buy links for Hotel Pool.
“Vocals belting, guitars clattering and clanging; The Ross Sea Party re-emerges in 2012 like thunder. Or maybe it’s with a track called “Thunder”. Same thing, right?
With the “whoa-oh-oh-oh’s” and rise and fall of Brady Erickson’s vocals the track feels like some kind of spring fling, a celebration of torrential downpours and mad dashes to the car that make you wish you wouldn’t have left that hoodie behind.
You slam those doors and sit there stiffened from the cold rain as a chill runs up your spine. Suddenly everyone gets the giggles. Who cares if your mascara is running, it was a thrill.
It’s a damn good track. Whoa-oh-oh-oh.”
If you haven’t yet, grab “Thunder” via the bandcamp link or below.
