boy from HOTEL MEXICO on Vimeo.
Hotel Mexico’s new album Her Decorated Post Love dropped yesterday, and definitely worth your time. The Kyoto group also released a video for that album’s lead-off track, “boy,” yesterday, which you can watch above. This song bares a slight resemblance to Hotel Mexico’s older “Starling, Tiger, Fox,” what with it being built on a rising keyboard melody. Yet “boy” also highlights the big change the band have embraced for Post Love…the vocals are no longer delivered in falsetto, but in a more traditional style. It proves to be just as hypnotic, though, which is what these guys do so well. Look for more on this album soon.
