New Music | Empress Hotel - Bells Ring

Empress Hotel – Bells Ring
Pop revivalist New Orleans quintet Empress Hotel crafted this wonderfully cheery, fun, effervescent song “Bells Ring,” which appears on their Empress Hotel EP (out in March). This is the first I heard it, and I was pleased to hear they are working on their debut full-length, the followup to said EP, which was released on Park the Van (Generationals, Dr. Dog). The sound is a shimmering, keyboard laced pop infusion with sunny vocals that will brighten your day.

The band is also beginning a tour with Van Hunt, and they will be all over the US. Get yourself to a show, and check out their fantastic debut EP.
