THE LISTENING BOOTH | THE NEW ROCK N ROLL : HOTEL MIRA – “BABY”

Last time out, I reported that one of my indie rock faves, JPNSGRLS had morphed into Hotel Mira, with a dynamic new single, 3AM Lullaby.

New song “Baby” ups the ante with a sophisticated arrangement that belies its melodic simplicity. Running gamut from funk to alt-rock to soul-pop, “Baby” is a triumph of determined songwriting without sacrificing an iota of hooky satisfaction.

The trio will be releasing a collection of six songs on August 17th. Can hardly wait!
