Montauk Hotel - Sense of Place

Info: 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', the launch gig for which takes place in Whelan’s this Saturday, August 12th.

Montauk Hotel have made an impressive impact on the Dublin music scene over the past year with their 80's 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.

Directed, filmed and edited by lead-vocalist Claudia Verdecchia, Montauk Hotel's video for their new single, 'Sense of Place' was shot at various locations in the greater Dublin environs and the quaint residential streets of Stoneybatter in D7. The new single has a vibrant optimism, laced with 80's references. A banana split of Cocteau Twins' powerful vocals, prominent bass and guitar, with The La's providing the brevity of the percussion, the jangle-pop cream on top if you will. As always with Montauk Hotel, be it a live show or a single track, by the time you've reached the end they've already lifted you out of your reality and into a better place.
