When soulful Seattle starlet Adra Boo lent her vocals to the track "Wildwood" on Hotels' 2016 LP Night Showers, it was an undeniable chemistry. Formerly half of the funk duo Fly Moon Royalty, Boo's powerhouse vocals made an intriguing match for Hotels' dark new wave sound. As the band put it themselves, think "what if Solange and Joy Division collaborated on a James Bond soundtrack?" The band are currently working on a new album, their first to feature Boo as a full-time member, and the stand-alone single "Sides" is a great sneak peek at what's yet to come.

Seattleites can catch the band tonight (Friday, January 31st) at the Lo-Fi Performance Gallery. Check out today's featured track below, and scroll down to revisit the band's 2017 in-studio session at KEXP.
