Park Hotel are pitched as a ‘post-electronic dance band’ based in London. Comprised of the creative duo of Tim Abbey and Rebeca Marcos-Rosa, their music explores the territory between alternative electronica and slick disco songwriting. As a debut track, Gone As A Friend is a real statement of intent, laced with supercool boy/girl vocals and an inventive, addictive groove.
Live, their metropolitan disco-rock studio incarnation expands into a six-piece neo-funk band, featuring three-way vocal harmonies, two guitars, drums, percussion, keyboards – and cowbell. And if that sounds a little hard to imagine, you can see and hear it all for yourself in London next month at their show at The Victoria in Dalston, East London, on 14 March. Tickets here.
