The Hot Toddies / Press

“The fourpiece-now-threepiece has that typical in-your-basement sound that feels born from night swims, beachside bike rides, and a little too much of that magical elixir.”

“...their new song, “Summertime Blues” ... is a slightly heavier, more garage rock than their previous retro bubblegum pop.”

“I fucking love this EP... like if Veruca Salt circa American Thighs travelled back in time to 1965, moved to California, popped some pick-me-ups, and cut an album to send it to us, here, in the future.”

“The latest from Oakland's Hot Toddies, the five-song "Bottoms Up" EP, is like Cake meets the Raconteurs with more PMS.”

The Owl Mag

“If you’re into talented babes, then you’re surely ready for The Hot Toddies. These Oakland ladies emulate an easy and breezy pop rock, a comforting beacon among a bevy of less-talented bands who take themselves far too seriously.”

“This band has all the intangibles on stage. I’ve never caught a band before they became amazing until now. Orange tomato, melted-but-not-yet-golden-brown cheese on a pizza, margarita with crushed ice but not yet blended — you get the idea. This next album is the definition of anticipation.””

“This quartet of East Bay babes rocks a kind of indie surf sexy darkness that makes college radio deejays drool and crawl”

“Oakland’s Hot Toddies are so retro, smart and sexy, you’d think they were Japanese.”

“...Fresh, engaging and altogether delightful noise-pop with odd, punky lyrics about being horny in Seattle and matters of suchlike pith. A rare treat and I commend their album, Smell the Mitten (out on Asian Man), to your palpitating attention.”

“The Hot Toddies are doo-wop bubblegum pop revivalists that proof that you can be cool and cute. Their album Smell the Mitten is packed with smart infectious tunes that are like a freak summer breeze in the cold winter.”

“The Hot Toddies craft upbeat indie-pop rhythms with a dash of retro-rock and barbershop style harmonies that are almost too catchy. Oh, and they're hot too.”

Synthesis Magazine

“Oakland girl band The Hot Toddies mix 1950's beach movie pop with soft indie rock, hard whiskey and a dry sense of humor.”

KEXP Radio Website

"The Hot Toddies are the best thing happening in Oakland, CA. On the band’s debut album, Smell The Mitten, they mix everything you love about the Wall of Sound, garage rock, Japanese pop, and power pop into one uniformed sound that is as funny and clever as it is rocking.
