Hot Hot Heat’s highly anticipated new album, Future Breeds (Dangerbird Records), hits stores on June 8th but fans in New York can get an early taste when the band begins its May residency at Brooklyn’s Public Assembly. The band opted to do the shows at the venue because of its intimate setting and its close ties to Brooklyn’s thriving indie music scene – a connection that the band feels to be particularly relevant with their forthcoming album.
Future Breeds is filled with the addictive, candy-coated melodies that Hot Hot Heat are famous for, but it also includes some of the band’s most experimental moments yet. Charged with sonic detail, the collection of songs is packed with unconventional rhythms and quirky arrangements. From the dark, carnival-esque feel of “Times a Thousand” to the frenzy of “What is Rational,” Future Breeds balances danceable, pop melodies with an unfettered and musically adventurous spirit.
