The Hot Dark / Press

“San Francisco area band The Hot Dark are into progressive jazz rock. Founded by Kiel Williams and Rick Moore, previouslyof the studio project Descendants of Prospectors, until the urge to play live got the better of them. In Retrospect is the stand-out from their 3-track January 2013 EP - synth and sax driven indie rock mashed up with a Sixties TV soundtrack feel. The other tracks, Blossom and I and We, are more straightforward.”

“Ascending beyond the folky roots, the new band felt a name change was necessary, and last month became The Hot Dark, expanding their reach beyond the Northern California area. Stream “Blossom” above and check out more tracks from the EP on their Souncloud”

“As you’ll hear, the six-piece fog city band has a big sound and a lot going on in their tracks with all kinds of instruments – from electric guitar to the saxophone. The lead track, “Blossom,” is simply a great track, easily of the best of the week.”

“As an example of how bands can grow and develop then look no further than San Francisco's The Hot Dark. They began as a studio-based duo called Descendants of Prospectors (which in that part of the world they may well be) but gradually acquired members and are now a six-piece "post-new-wave sax-rock dance band". Recently the group's name was changed and an EP was recorded; all of the tracks can be downloaded for free from SoundCloud. It's safe to say that the strange description the band have given themselves is pretty much bang on, except they missed out "with copious amounts of flute" from the end.”
