Pottery jump right near a ‘Hot Heater’ with their latest new single

Pottery have unveiled another cracking bite of their upcoming debut album, with new single ‘Hot Heater’

A swagger-filled number that immediately calls to mind the swigging disco-pop of Talking Heads, it’s a corker if we do say so. And we have. So we do say so. It’s done. Agreed.

Talking about the track, the band said: "While there are hints of environmental themes on this one, we mainly wanted to make a disco song with a robotic feeling, something that could be easily chanted. Austin was originally really interested in heat as a musical concept/feeling - some of the early album titles we threw around were Hot Hot Hot and Sun Fever - and there are a bunch of other heat references on the album [see previous single 'Hot Like Jungle']. In the studio he’d be joking around and yelling stuff at us like “let’s make it hot!” right before a take. A lot of that didn’t end up totally sinking in, but some did... like on this song."

The band’s debut album ‘Welcome To Bobby’s Motel’ is set for release on June 26th - and look! We caught up with the band about it all in the April issue of Dork, which you can have a read of right here.
