A couple of months ago, Hotel Decor popped up on our radar thanks to earwormy lofi listen ‘All The Rage’ and now the Canadian newcomer is back with another sumptuous number by the named of ‘Could It Take Me Any Longer’. The artists has also partnered up with visual atelier Dual Sense who directed a warm-toned and scenic music video that perfectly fits Hotel Decor‘s sonic aesthetics.
“After shooting music videos for my old project (NVY), I wanted to go in a less dark direction and make something really stupid and fun. What ended up happening was basically hauling a bunch of props with us and setting up shoot locations wherever we thought looked interesting. This was also the beginning of my friendship with Magnus, my giraffe that has starred in both music videos and press photos.”
This fun and organic process shares a lot of qualities with how the song came about. As Hotel Decor goes one to tell us:
“This was the first song I wrote after myself and my studio partner had to move all of our gear out of the shared studio space we were using just over a year ago. I basically had all my studio gear crammed into my bedroom, trying to figure out what I wanted to make. I ended up watching a lot of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” on my second monitor while tracking this.That’s kind of how it came to be. It was also the first song I ended up properly attempting to do vocals for. I didn’t want to go for anything super crisp or studio-quality sounding, and I was really happy with how they turned out.”
