The long-waited new The Explorers Club album Grand Hotel comes out tomorrow on 14th of february. I’m confident this will be a harmony-filled pop treasure. Because one apparently can’t write about The Explorers Club without mentioning The Beach Boys and Burt Bacharach, I’ll get that out of the way now. The Beach Boys and Burt Bacharach. Before I send my application to the school of lazy journalism, I will spend some quality time with these smooth and beautiful pop sounds that admire the past, but aren’t completely stuck in it. The debut was already gorgeous and based on one listening session at Spinner, I know that this new album is also marvellous. Time to hit the buy button tomorrow.
This is Run, Run, Run from the new album.
