Just recently Canadian artist Csaba Laszlo, aka Hotel Decor, gave us the next taste of his upcoming debut ep with its title-track “Could It Take Me Any Longer”, which also came with promise of a Dual Sense directed music video coming our way soon – and lucky for us, soon is now!
As Csaba reveals below, he wanted to make this one to be a bit more playful and fun, and it was also the beginning of his new friendship with Magnus the Giraffe…
“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.” – Hotel Decor
The song itself came to be during a transitional period in Csaba’s life, and as he reveals below it may have been influenced by some American sitcom binge sessions.
“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.” – Hotel Decor
