Listen: ‘Ginger Ale’ by Hotel Mira

Vancouver’s Hotel Mira is the latest project fronted by JPNSGRLS mastermind Charlie Kerr. The singer and his new bandmates—guitarist Colton Lauro and bassist Mike Noble—have taken the sound out of the garage and into a considerably lusher musical landscape.

This, from Charlie:

“Ginger Ale” is about going on a date when I was on tour in London. And everything was going well but then I kept losing my train of thought by having these random, horrible flashbacks to fucked up things in my childhood. It got to the point where I could hardly hold a conversation. Becky, if you’re reading this, you are a wonderful, Scottish flower and I apologize for being so distracted and out of sorts that evening.
