Lucid Express – Hotel 65 [Music Video]

Today, Hong Kong dreampop 5 piece band Lucid Express dropped the music video for Hotel 65.
The third & final single is taken from their self-titled debut which comes out on July 16, 2021 via Kanine Records and Middle Class Cigars.
Again another great dreamy hazy alterna-dream pop tune and showing off their tour diary before the pandemic in the music video.

About the track:
“Hotel 65” is a crash course in the atmospheric moods that pervade this album; finding the band gently oscillating between crunching walls of sound, and sparkling airy passages.
Lyrically, the track name checks the guesthouse where the group’s singer Kim Ho stayed when visiting the UK and speaks of a relationship that should never have happened between two strangers who know that their time together is only going to be brief.

Alongside their last single release, “Hollowers”, it’s another song that contributes to the sense of uncertainty and impermanence that permeates the Lucid Express album. A sense established from the opening track “North Acton”, which acknowledges that “none of this would last forever” to the melancholy wish of the album closer “Ride The Night”, which dreams of being able to stretch an evening into eternity.

The “Hotel 65” video is crafted as a collage of footage taken from the band’s travels in their native Hong Kong, as well as in Vietnam, Japan, the UK and the United States. These flashes of scenery reflect the lyrical turns of the song, while being interspersed with the words themselves scrawled onto mirrors, notebooks and paper scraps. “
