Album Notes
Hotrod Cadets - distressed guitar pop from Scotland.

Hotrod Cadets play distressed guitar pop, sounding like The Proclaimers meets The Pixies, they combine irresistible melodies, edgy guitars and lyrics with a dark twist.

Currently gigging their new album \"Something in the Engine\" round Scotland, Hotrod Cadets have enjoyed radio play in Scotland and across the USA. We have featured on several podcasts, as well as receiving coverage in national newspapers.

Hotrod Cadets make music for music lovers. If you like catchy tunes and lyrics worth listening to, you\'ll love our new album, \"Something in the Engine\".

It\'s a collection of 12 original guitar-based pop songs, with the emphasis on melody and harmony, plus lyrics worth reading.

The theme of the album is disconnection: in relationships, lifestyle and the world at large.

Described by one reviewer as \"gentle songs with secret muscle\", Hotrod Cadets\' music combines catchy tunes with darker lyrics to create an immediately accessible album that rewards repeated listening.

Here\'s what people said about our first album, \"Breaking Up\":

\"exhilarating\", \"it sounds exuberant about heartbreak, and the song soars\", \"you can find some of yourself in the voice on Breaking Up - it\'s singing songs for all of us\" - Paul Ferguson

\"An across the board hit\", \"The songs are strong pieces of work and all of the performances are unpretentious, emotionally revealing, and have an incandescent urgency that I find very compelling\" - John Bonner

\"fantastic album, the lyrics are really deep and speak volumes \" - Erika Bird
