Creative outlet for label-founder Brian DiMeglio, Stay Safe blends the sonic influences of
early '00s indie rock and hazy beach vibes.
"'Hotel Pools' brings that ‘new-old stock’ sound, packaged nicely in a hi-fi record. From
start to finish, Hotel Pools delivers stories and memories that seem incredibly vivid and familiar. It’s almost an ethereal experience when you close your eyes and sink into the album. Reminiscent of early Weezer at times, the guitar riffs running around Hotel Pools are built with nostalgic energy. The doubled vocals used throughout the record leave an almost otherworldly taste."
