Hotel Garuda unleashes debut EP, ‘The Tension’
Hotel Garuda has finally released his highly anticipated debut EP, The Tension, and this four-track collection is nothing short of breathtaking. Formerly a duo consisting of Manila Killa and Candle Weather, Hotel Garuda has continued on as Weather’s solo project since Killa’s amicable departure in summer 2018. Fortunately, the split did not slow the Hotel Garuda project down, with 2020 already seeing the release of two singles from the EP, “Rush” and “Mutual,” as well as a groovy remix for RAC and Louis The Child‘s “Passion.” With the full debut EP out now, Hotel Garuda has never been stronger.
The Tension features four unique songs that combine an unmatched old-school vibe with the preciseness of modern production. Retro synths and live instruments mesh with tight electronic influence, all topped by original vocals from Hotel Garuda himself. Simultaneously upbeat and emotional, The Tension is the kind of EP you listen to all the way through as you drive with the top down on a fresh summer night. A standout track on the EP, “Mutual” boasts a tantalizing guitar melody that will leave you with chills running down your spine.
