    Hospitality return with the follow-up to their glowing 2012 debut with a darker, richer collection of eclectic avant pop in Trouble. Taking unexpected yet satisfying turns, the new album sees the band offer up a moodier palette, with more instances of space and silence, looser arrangements and more open production.

    The album draws on the expansive sound of 70s progressive rock and the minimalist urgency of post punk, citing specifically King Crimson’s "In The Wake of Poseidon", Arthur Russell and Wire as influences.

    "Sweet at the core but pleasantly dark around the edges." Uncut

    "Like Sleater-Kinney reimagined for synth-pop teens." Mojo

    "takes a different direction from what was heard on the debut, embracing dark, dour synths and vocalist Amber Papini's slightly growling lower register." Pitchfork

    “Papini’s lyrics are witty, and if you let her songs—which range from toe-tapping power pop to amped-up folk—into your head, they’ll stay there.” —The New Yorker
