Hotel War: Get Up

Nashville's Hotel War, Lianne La Havas for Converse and a classic '80s #PrivateJam in our look at music this week

Sometimes, the best music comes in the purest form. In this case it’s Nashville’s latest band to watch—Dayton, Ohio natives Hotel War—who are pure, dyed in the wool, no nonsense rockers. Opting for bluesy guitar riffs, hard-hitting drum solos, distorted bass lines and whiskey-drenched vocals, Hotel War are at once a contemporary culmination of various rock influences as well as a textbook definition of American rock music. Keep an eye out for these Southern-via-Midwest rockers as they embark on a US tour in support of their upcoming full-length record.
