Hotel Lux are an English band. Playing live and residing in London via Portsmouth, the five piece have been road testing their songs of dissatisfaction since 2016.
Influenced less by bands than the world around them and the film works of Shane Meadows amongst others. Hotel Lux design a landscape of council flats riots, Job Centre Plus and pints of Guiness, whilst their music lends itself to social commentary and picking holes in those who deserve it. Debut track ‘Envoi’ found support from titles such as Clash, Loud and Quiet, Dazed and So Young Magazine. And new music pioneer Matt Wilkinson gave Hotel Lux their first radio play on Beats1.
“The intensity of their live performances is matched to the songwriting underneath - it's a real trip, albeit one that's likely to have a sting in the tail.” Clash.
