New Moons compilation artists August Hotel are back with a cinematic new video for their single ’12AM’. With vivid visuals, the video follows a therapist as she delves further and further into the life of her client, breaking all semblance of professional detachment as she finds herself developing an intimate relationship with him.

August Hotel is an indie pop band based out of Chicago, comprised of Joe Padilla (vocals), Ryan Lammers (guitar/production), Craig Schwartz, Jr (keyboards), Dean Sinclair (drums), and Cale Singleton (bass). Their propensity for merging euphoric synth pop with reflective indie rock manifested itself in the band’s self-produced single “12AM.”


Shortly after its release, “12AM” received airplay on Chicago’s 101WKQX and was later featured on our compilation New Moons Vol. VII. August Hotel has been seen opening for the likes of The Kickback and Knox Hamilton, as well as headlining several clubs around Chicago and the Midwest. Following a steady rise over the past year, the beginning of 2017 finds the band in the studio, wrapping production on their upcoming EP. August Hotel is – in the words of Vox Magazine – “a band on the cusp of a breakthrough journey.”

We can’t wait to see where that journey takes them.
