Song: “Hotel”

Cool, laid back, vague.  “Hotel” whispers to you from the dark in the beginning, building.  It’s smoky and blurry, coming from between sleep and wake.  When it focuses, like a sleepwalker coming to, it becomes clear that it’s all sex, whether or not that was the intent.  The bass is a lure, a promise of what will happen if you follow.  The vocals ask you gently to close your eyes with sultry soft breath and effortless seduction, while the lyrics make the song feel secretive and mysterious.

First Listen Setup: In the dark, or, if you have the luxury, with blue or red colored light – eyes closed either way.  If possible,  listen to while driving at night at least once.
