Hot Rumour is an instantly likeable and recognizable band. With their hot new single titled "Run To Me", the trio is garnering much deserved attention and quickly advancing forward to the large audience they deserve. Formed in December of 2015, this Los Angeles act sounds like veterans of the music scene already.
The composition within their songs is unique, emotionally driven and carefully produced. Sounding like a cross between Muse, the Gorrilaz, and something a little different, what Hot Rumour is bringing to the table is exciting and fresh.
"Two Days To Millennium" kicks it all into high gear, and showcases the raw energy this band can create. Where "Run To Me" was a bit slower, more methodical, and a bit of a different progression in the composition, "Two Days To Millennium" starts off running and doesn’t slow its pace in the least. The hallmark of a truly great song is whether you must hit repeat, and whether you must turn it up louder; and yes, both things I did. This song is a juggernaut of sound to say the least.
Perhaps the most diverse song on the album belongs to the track titled Psycho. What starts out as a slower song with some capable singing soon turns into a song where the vocals lift off and cast aside all the restraints. It is here where we can see the true range of the band's sound and the impressive vocals that Aaron Ficchi harnesses. Speaking of the band’s sound, Frankie Siragusa, a renowned Los Angeles producer who has worked with major acts like REM, Reggie Watts, and more, brings some incredible skill to band.
Josh Ficchi (Aaron Ficchi’s brother), brings his all with his uniquely inspired drum beats. Acting as the band's de facto leader, Josh is leading this musical empire into new and exciting waters indeed.
In a world choked by artists impatiently releasing less than polished work, Hot Rumour is setting the bar high for what is to be expected from any band hoping to succeed in this, very competitive field. So take note if you are musician looking for inspiration, because Hot Rumour is giving a real lesson in professional musicianship,
