Last week, Canadian musician Csaba Laszlo unveiled his new musical project, Hotel Decor, with his debut single, All The Rage. If you're loving the track like us and hanging for the visual, you can watch the music video right here on MILKY before its release!
Directed Charlie Sirovyak and Pavel Romano (Dual Sense Films), the visual sees the musician within a number of settings, including a beautiful mountain range, along the sea and within a neon-lit room, shrouded in plants. With his guitar in hand, Laszlo meanders around each scene, performing the track, whilst flashes of lyrics occasionally appear on screen.
Speaking of the visual, the musician shares: “This video came together pretty organically, which probably had a lot to do with me being good friends with the video team. A lot of it was basically Charlie and Pash going “oh you know where would look really sick?” or “woah what’s that over there let’s shoot there. Due to lockdown circumstances, it made planning a really big intricate shoot next to impossible. That in combination with winter in Vancouver we basically jumped at any sunny days to get out and wrap up the video. A lot of the video planning ended up being me bringing the guitar and maybe whatever other props we thought might work. It was a super fun video to shoot and I feel like that’s visible in the finished product."
Sirovyak and Romano add: “We didn’t get to plan much for the All The Rage video. We drove into the mountain’s and started filming. The slapdash approach doesn’t always work when it comes to this type of thing, but we have along history working with Hotel Decor and we’ve developed a pretty good dynamic over the years. It sounds corny but the process from beginning to end is just very “chill”. We have a lot of fun on these projects it definitely shows.”
Born out of boredom and isolation, the track conceptually navigates the musicians circumstances at the time of its creation, detailing the emotions of feeling stuck and boxed in. Fusing together alt-indie, electro and dream pop into one succinct soundscape, the song began as an instrumental piece over a year ago, before Laszlo returned to the piece a number of times, eventually incorporating the distorted, mesmerising vocals we hear.
