Hot Seconds are a Brooklyn, NY-based indie rock outfit formed in 2007 that plays fuzzed out, Brit-infused indie rock with catchy hooks that are both danceable and memorable.
Citing a wide array of Brit-pop/rock influences, their sound somehow manages to meld the urgency/street-smart storytelling of The Clash, the aural collage/majestic grandeur of Spiritualized as well as the raw, funked-up, immediacy of Primal Scream, tied together with a love of all things Manchester.
UK-born singer/songwriter James Love and composer/producer Eran Westwood, whose credits include, among others, seminal industrial godfathers Front 242 and 90's NYC band Spill, became acquainted through a chance meeting and, in discovering their mutual passion for Brit pre/post-punk/rock, set out to work on a few songs for a "project" EP. Far surpassing their expectations and delighted with the fruits of said efforts, it was decided to develop/re-envision the project and the duo decided to put a full band together in order to translate these songs live. Soon thereafter, jack-of-all-trades Marcel Simoneau was tapped to man the keyboards, along with veteran NYC bassist Bob Troia (Astronaut, Superjuice) and drummer Ian Hudgins and HOT SECONDS was born.
