Exhilarating, glossy, and nostalgia-inducing, Melbournian four-piece Viera Motel have recently released their debut single “Take Heart”. The track features a 90’s Eurodance-inspired piano riff that carries the listener from arousing verses to infectious pre-choruses, building the foundation for a towering chorus which completes the track. Frontman Jay Pollock delivers an honest self-reflection to reclaim audacity in the lyrics, springing in and out of falsetto, accompanied by new-wave-inspired pads, drummer Matt Colvin's’ thumping four to the floor drum track and Matthew Ferguson’s driving guitar.
The name Viera Motel, fashioned from pink neon, flickers in the shadows of the Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne. Established in late 2017, each room in Viera Motel now accommodates a number of dark but honest stories confessed alongside imposing choruses and ear-worm riffs the likes of 90’s/00’s outfits Interpol, New Order, Joy Division, The Killers, The Strokes and Oasis.
With the expertise of Melbourne producer ‘Malcolm Besley’ (Northeast Party House, City Calm Down, Client Liaison), they have combined the traits of modern indie-pop with the realness of the 90’s into a track that allows these traits to shine through on their debut single “Take Heart”.
