Listing Detail Tabs

Three-piece Auckland alternative-rock act Decortica have been going strong for the past five years, and have just “given birth” to their second album, ‘Love Hotel’.

The band say that photographer Misty Keasler provided a lot of inspiration when they were writing the record with her book, ‘Love Hotels: The Hidden Fantasy Rooms of Japan’, which was the result of her own cultural study into “romance and spaces that are both public and private at the same time”. The band built a relationship with Keasler through their album, and were thrilled to have the documentary photographer provide the image for their CD cover.

Stating that they “just wanted to make something interesting for ourselves and others”, these guys have done just that with ‘Love Hotel’ which took about three months to write. It was then recorded at the Auckland studio of David Holmes who also produced their last record, ‘A New Aesthetic’. “He invested a lot of himself in the album too, so it was another really positive project…” front man Mathew Bosher said in a recent interview.
