Starting with a poignant emotive piano hook and building to a string-filled cinematic experience, Dark Hotel is a conversation about mental health, feelings of loneliness and finding help. The vocals of Jack Hawitt and NYAKI are a perfect match with tight harmonies and soaring melodies. Speaking of Dark Hotel,
“Mental health is a very real issue for all of us especially in the instagram era. Not just in the music industry but in every day life. We find ourselves scrolling through social media posts and comparing our average days to somebody else’s ‘best bits’. The effects can be devastating and it’s something close to home for both of us. We wanted to write something that reflects how people feel and to let people know that it’s OK to ask for help”
‘Dark Hotel’ is available now via all major digital platforms.
