The brainchild of producer, songwriter, and L.A. hairstylist Aaron Ficchi, Hot Rumour is an alternative rock outfit turned-electro-pop duo with a flair for catchy hooks and sticky 80s beats. Akin to the likes of The Killers, M83, and Chvrches, their latest single ‘Matador’ takes you to the alleyways of neon nostalgia and back again.
Huffington Post writes: “While the band’s expert musicianship is obvious throughout the entire album, it’s in moments found on tracks like “Run to Me,” more so than the Muse-heavy tunes that line the second half of the EP, where Hot Rumour’s future chart-dominating potential is clear. Mixing British alt. rock with dancey synth vibes is something all future music festival-goers can get behind.”
LA Music Blog raves: “Hot Rumour has a relentless rock sound that I really enjoy. It’s like a fusion of AWOLNATION with a little Muse — an indie sound with a good pop edge. They have a good look and sweet fashion sense as well, and I think their unique aesthetic will resonate with listeners as more and more people find out about the band.”
