On ‘Speaking Off The Record’ Hotel Mira seem to do exactly that, baring their soul in this harrowing and introspective gem.
Hotel Mira showcase their vulnerable and candid indie pop sound on latest single ‘Speaking Off The Record’. The track is a low-key and at times intrusively personal look inside the mind of frontman and writer Charlie Kerr.
It is a track fueled by introspection and self-reflection, and a heart-wrenching account of an artist laying themselves bare. Fortunately, the music that accompanies the narrative is just as inspired and thoughtful as the words, with the outfits indie pop sound packing a sufficient punch to accompany such a starkly visceral track.
Kerr notes: “Speaking Off the Record is a song that explores several things that I never thought I would sing about / address publicly. It explores some of my lowest lows and the confessional, blunt lyrics and paired-down production elements of the song lent itself to an equally simple, bold video.“
