Soup of the Day #19: Sun Hotel- Alchemy

Sun Hotel sound like the South they’re from; sometimes swampy and sweltering, sometimes cool and breezy, but always assertive and self-assured.” - Quick Before It Melts

The New Orleans based quintet Sun Hotel are on fire with the sound of what they call post-gospel. On their latest EP, Gifts, the band blaze through 5 tracks armed with fuzzy, drifting ambient guitars, infectious four-part harmonies, thundering rhythms, and biting lyrics. 

On "Alchemy", lead singer Tyler Scurlock leads their haunt with cortex piercing words and an oddly alluring voice that perfectly accents the surrounding haze of guitars, strings and echoing vocals, which together metastasize slowly into one of the best indie rock songs of the year.

The Gifts EP is now available digitally and on vinyl. Check out the various packages on their main website.
