Singles Lost in Time: Transit + The Hotelier

Hello and welcome to Singles Lost in Time, where we dig through our library here at idobi (like monks sifting through historical texts) and we dust off some absolute bangers that never got their proper time in the sun.

Transit – “Nothing Lasts Forever”

Transit has a way of merging pop hooks and punk style while keeping the band’s emo heart visibly on their sleeve. “Nothing Lasts Forever” has great gobs of energy that hoist this song about impermanence into the stratosphere of emo essentials. Transit draws parallels between the constant flux of the coastline with the volatility of love. A beautiful upbeat song that deserves to be heard.

The Hotelier – “Housebroken”

A slow bluesy kind of rock rolls out of the speakers as The Hotelier begins “Housebroken”. It’s not long before singer Christian Holden’s seraphic voice questions your dog-on-a-leash life. Crunchy guitars accentuate the bluntness of the question: Do you choose to unleash your life or will you stay “Housebroken”? The song acts as an existential siren. It is demanding you to shake loose from the yoke of abuse in its many modern forms.
