NEWS: Hotel Lux release Christmas single

Hotel Lux are not the most likely of band to release a Christmas single, but that’s exactly what they’ve done. ‘The Carvery‘ begins in the true spirit of Christmas with its jingly jangly instrumentation but as soon as the deadpan vocal of Lewis Duffin kicks in this is most definitely Hotel Lux. A rollicking track, tongue in cheek, and made to be sung with your arms slung around your mates. With its nod to Nigella Lawson, ‘The Cavery‘ is also convivial and full of humour. Hotel Lux may have just saved your Christmas!

The band are set to hit the road for a short run of dates next month as the final support of their debut album Hands Across The Creek which was released earlier this year. The band will also take part in Independent Venue Week 2024, with some gigs scheduled for early next year. 

On the new single, the band say:  
“Our contender for Christmas number one. Last year we were challenged to muster up a Christmas tune in a day at RAK studios. We wanted to appeal to that Christmas nostalgia, a bit of Slade, a bit of The Pogues. This year we’re releasing it for all the world to stream. Let’s toast Nigella”
