Montauk Hotel Release New Single and Video ‘Sense of Place’

Following from the success of their debut E.P. earlier this year, indie-shimmer-pop act Montauk Hotel release their new single ‘Sense of Place’.

Montauk Hotel have made an impressive impact on the Dublin music scene over the past year with their 80s influenced glimmer of indie pop, fusing strong melodies with glistening guitars to create a sound that is their own. Montauk Hotel are made up of Claudia Verdecchia (vocals), Shell Dooley (guitars), Aoife Hester (bass) and Karima Dillon-El Toukhy (drums).

The band have garnered a reputation as one of the city’s most exciting live acts, with shows including The Last Mixed Tape’s Lost Series, Bello Bar, The Sound House, Retro Revival Indie Club, The Bowery and The Harbour Bar, Vantastival and Sunflower Festival, as well as headline shows at Whelans, Sin E, The Harbour Bar and The Workman’s Club. The band were selected as RTE’s Irish Band Set to Rise for 2017.

Their debut single ‘Black Dress’ was released in late January to critical acclaim. Montauk Hotel launched their E.P. on March 10th with a sold-out show in Whelans, Dublin. Their launch gig for ‘Sense of Place’ takes place in Whelan’s on August 12th.

“A gorgeous jangly pop noise” Hot Press

“the Dublin band’s vapourous indie guitar married with strident vocals… is delicately-spun and melodic stuff” RTE Entertainment – Irish Band Set to Rise 2017

Praise for ‘Montauk Hotel’ E.P.

“…a highly stylised record filled with vivid flourishes of brilliance that set the four-piece apart… Leaving them in their own shimmer-pop milieu”9/10, The Last Mixed Tape

“there’s a real earworming charm to the band’s streamlined, chorus-drenched jangle-pop”The Thin Air

“Montauk Hotel is a fine debut… that shows great promise so early on in their tenure as a band writing and recording music” State Magazine
