Hotel St. George
Fun Shine Line
Fire Note Says: Hotel St. George provide some good ol' uninhibited rock n roll.
San Diego's Hotel St. George have been shopping for a bigger audience and a label deal with their new indie rocker Fun Shine Line. The record has all the components of New York swagger gone west with their gritty guitar work, ruckus raising hooks, imperfect UKish lead vocals and knowing when to mellow their enthusiasm. The entire record possesses these moments when the band takes time to slow down and just let their music flow. It represents where they have grown the most from last years more in your face City Boy Lemon , as each track is under their complete control. The group now includes more highlights with synthesizers, that balances out the bands tough side and provides solid support for many tracks on the album. Fun Shine Line is definitely a progression and re-focus for Hotel St. George, as these ten songs have a much greater sense of confidence all the way down to soft harmonic closer "1001 Years". If you are really into unsigned artists and always on the hunt for something new, then I fully recommend you seek out Hotel St. George and their new solid release Fun Shine Line!
Key Tracks: "1000 Times", "That's Why I Drink Every Night", "How's Your Mother"
