Hot Seconds is a Brooklyn/NYC-based 5-piece indie-rock outfit featuring former members of Front 242, Spill, Astronaut, and superjuice. 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.
