The Etiquette - "Hot Tonight"

Today is an exciting day because The Etiquette is finally releasing its first single, and it's purchasable on iTunes so get to it!  Fans of Empire Holiday would probably recognize Mando Aldas and Paul Wade (pictured left and center, respectively), and they're coming back into the music scene with this project!

If you like techno dance music, you will enjoy "Hot Tonight."  It's fairly easy to picture this song being played a popular club downtown.  With sensual vocals at the verses, just imagine yourself at a club dancing real close with an attractive stranger and they whisper in your ear.  The club is packed, dark, and only illuminated with flashing colorful lights.  The lyrics even allude to that kind of atmosphere.

Something very interesting about the song would have to be the rap/breakdown at the bridge, partly because it is unexpected.  You're grooving to an electronic sound then you're hit with rap.  It's brief, but still keeps you sucked into the music.

In some aspects, the song overall reminds me of Enrique's Iglesias's more recent club sound, and that is not a bad thing - it just screams sexy.  What really has me intrigued is the way the music makes you want to dance, especially at the chorus with the pumping beat pulsating underneath the melody.  This song is made to make people dance - there's no way you can stand or sit still when listening to this song.  Got me fist pumping that's for sure.
