Pandemic Creates Time for Art:
Indie Rock Band, Hot4Robot, Releases Debut Album May 18, 2021

Indie rock band Hot4Robot releases its debut, self-titled album on May 18, 2021 with a series of locally produced web and podcast listening parties.  Hot4Robot is the latest collaboration of celebrated local solo artists Alex Radus and Dave Cahill.  However, without the pandemic, it may have been a few more years before Hot4Robot’s concept rock album saw the light of day.

Listening Parties (list to be updated)

  • flex* adapt with intent – a webcast series hosted by Dina Hall (date and time tba)
  • Sit Downs and Sessions – a podcast series hosted by Chris Poh and Dave McBride (date and time tba)

Radus and Cahill are musical opposites. Radus is a “sullen, sultry crooner” (Philadelphia Inquirer) and “refined songwriter” (WDVR), while Cahill is a “surreal” guitarist and composer of “post-apocalyptic, dystopian landscapes” (Elucidator).  They have shared the stage with diverse national artists:  Richie Havens, Regina Spektor, Sharon Van Etten, Tim Reynolds and Dean Ween, and have performed at numerous festivals and famed clubs such as MusikFest, The New York Antifolk Festival, World Cafe Live, Club Passim, and John & Peters.

Their unlikely collaboration defines Hot4Robot’s sound.  Blending a colorful palette of influences (Dire Straits, Radiohead, Bowie, Muse, the Pixies), Hot4Robot creates rich, textured soundscapes in service to melody and lyric-driven compositions.  

This clash of opposites also shaped Hot4Robot’s story.  Begun in 2014, Hot4Robot was a multi-year labor of love.  This is due to the meticulous crafting of its songs and recordings, but also to Radus’ and Cahill’s busy schedules for their solo projects.  “Like everyone else, the pandemic slowed down our hectic lives and allowed us to focus on this project,” says Radus.  “Hot4Robot might have been a few more years in the making otherwise.”

As a concept rock album, Hot4Robot has only become more relevant with the passage of time. A dark, whimsical and at times humorous exploration of mankind’s use of tech to transcend itself, Hot4Robot merges thoughtful commentary with energetic and emotive indie rock delivery.  Think a musical version of Netflix’s Black Mirror.

The web and podcast listening parties will feature music and videos from the new album, interviews with Radus and Cahill on the making of Hot4Robot, contests and giveaways and more.

The pandemic has shown that music still connects us, even when we are physically apart–and that a little extra time may be all you need to realize a dream deferred.  Connect with Hot4Robot at their upcoming album release listening parties as they share their pandemic project with the world.

Hot4Robot also stars the seriously talented Evan Straley (bass) and Andy Janowiak (drums).
