Back in February 2014, The Hosts released their début album ‘Softly, Softly’ representing the missing link between Roy Orbison and Richard Hawley and which waltzed all over the playlists of BBC 6Music and Radio 2.
Now, precisely two years later, they have announced the release of the follow-up, entitled ‘Moon’. Tidy behaviour, in every sense.
The Hosts have previously spooked the masses playing with the likes of Richard Hawley, The Walkmen, Paul Weller, Suede, Cold War Kids and Cherry Ghost (but of course).
“The Hosts’ output is redolent of Roy Orbison crooning mournfully yet manfully over mountain-high rhapsodies worthy of Spector.” – The Guardian
