It was a bit of a shock for the guys at first as there was the mystery as to who actually entered them to begin with. But their recent EP (sent out to various record companies) delighted the ears of a certain someone in the industry and next thing they knew they were finalists! It is a public voting system that determines the winners so fingers crossed. Hotel India are simply delighted to be associated with the competition whatever the outcome.
The strength of the position came after the release of their latest video Black Eyes which has received the highest amount of both recorded and live acclaim. This comes from a band that more than pays its dues to its residents (fans!) and has bucket-loads more creativity to give. They now also have accepted the offer from 20 Rocks' owner and music associate to become their manager. They kick off this Friday with a gig at the venue! It should be more than enough to cheer us up from this constant jet stream! You'd be pushed to dampen a resident's spirits anyhow!
I will start needling you all for votes in a future post but for now, I leave you with a picture of Scott, the band's cheeky-chappie bassist, holding, proudly, the finalist certificate!
