From across the pond, The Hot One Two, a.k.a T.H.O.T, have returned to bring us yet another energetic, straight ahead, and feel good rock performance. Their latest single “Rolling Stone” will most certainly help shake you out of that COVID malaise. It only takes hearing a few bars of this one to get a real feel for the band’s musical influences. Tapping into that classic rock sound of the late ‘70s and ‘80s, the guys deliver powerful riffs and infectious vocal hooks that will draw you in.

Making up T.H.O.T; vocalist Simon West, Nick Manners, Nick Blackburn, Joe Chivers, along with Rory Lewis, they guys have made a pledge to carry the rock and roll torch and, in my opinion, they’re getting it done with this latest single. With head bopping beats, chunky baselines and guitar solos - that feature a marvelously retro tone - we’re dosed with one more injection of some upbeat summertime rock…just as the fall sets in.

If you have a special place in your heart for bands like Warrant and Poison; with “Rolling Stone,” The Hot One Two delivers a taste of that exuberance…minus the eyeliner of course.

“We think 'Rolling Stone' is a salute to Classic 'Feel Good' Rock. It’ll have you wanting to jump in the car on a sunny day, put the windows down, the speakers up and hit the open road. The video consists of footage we managed to capture this year, pre-Covid, from our only two shows of 2020 in Copenhagen & Cambridge. We’ve missed performing, and we just hope sharing this footage helps to reignite your excitement for live music once again, because there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, and all your favourite bands will be gracing their stages again soon”.
