“I wrote ‘Fire’ at a time when I was leaving behind an old version of myself,” shares lead singer-songwriter Jessica Hottman. “In this song, I am allowing fire to consume what has held me back from becoming who I was made to be.”
The song and video first debuted onwho wrote, “The indie pop trio emerges today with a fresh sound and dazzling look: ‘Fire’ is confident and fierce, an intense introduction to an artistry we cannot wait to fall for over the next few years. Blending buoyant pop melodies and big hooks with rock guitars, keyboard beds, and rich harmonies…‘Fire’ burns the past as a means of finding freedom – facilitating self-discovery, renewal, and transformation. An unshackling of mental chains, it’s a new beginning for a band whose bright future is still unwritten.”
Sisters Jessica and Heather Hottman have grown up with music an integral part of their lives. Raised in Omaha, NE (where they still call home), the two sang in church every Sunday along with their mother and younger sister, performed at a variety of local events, and spent countless hours jamming and writing music in the basement of their house. The years of developing and fine-tuning their music have paid off as in more recent years THE HOTTMAN SISTERS have performed at SXSW, theMaha Music Festival and shared line-ups with Run The Jewels, The New Pornographers, and Belle and Sebastian, among others.
THE HOTTMAN SISTERS, now complete with drummer Ed Getzlaff, will release an EP titled Louder on September 28.
