We all know Hotel California by the Eagles. Some might think this title is way too popular to name a band after it? Maybe, but if you like very much, you name your band after it. That's how Iceland based band was born in 2009. Back then they recorded an album called „The New Sound Of Folk“. In 2019 Daniel Green, the singer, decided to write new songs, tunes that wanna take you somewhere, especially when you are driving your car. Then Corona hit us all and the lockdown began. Finally time to rethink what we are doing and aiming for. Time for songwriters to let the magic happen. During the last seven months Daniel wrote 24 new songs.
Songs about friendship, how great kids are (at least in their parents perspective), even a track about Donald Trump. You could say it’s Americana. Maybe that genre fits ok. Neil Young or The Pixies are obvious influences. Every three to four weeks with the beginning of 2021 Hotel California releases one new track, 24 songs over 72 weeks. Two full new albums - the “Orange” with more up-tempo songs and one “Blue” with the folk topics.Let’s hit the road and we get carried away to a place called Hotel California!
Some of You Remember Me Like This follows the previous release Trust. It starts with a delightful guitar picking, the vocal is warm and gentle, the female backing vocal sweetens it even more. The track carries a hopeful message that even when things change there will be people who will remember the good times. And us as humans. The final line "some of you will remember this tune" is the ultimate hope of any creator. That despite not being among the most famous ones, there will be somebody somewhere deeply inmersed in your work because it speaks to them.
"join me on my walk I long to speak with you"
