Hotel Persona essentially
started when Stefan Olsdal (Placebo)
and David Amen decided
to spice up their friends house parties in London by providing dance
tunes to get people shaking their butts. Tracks like “Apocalypse”,
“Fight For Love”
and “The Fantastic One”
mix full on guitars with a thumping four to the floor beat that
made people get down as well as sing along.
As ‘the morning after’
reared its head, the song writing took a more naked and vulnerable
turn with songs like “To the
Light” and “Addicted”
exploring the fragility of being in love and the desire to escape
the harsh cruelty reality sometimes serves up. On the way a flamenco
song and a lullaby written for Stefan’s nephew came to be
part of the mix. The collection of songs was screaming to be recorded
and so they roped in the effervescent Javier
Solo to do the Spanish vocal duties. Stefan after
years of developing his vocal tone with Placebo sang the English
As the music was coming together, Stefan and David also kept themselves
busy as ‘Hotel Persona DJ’,
being invited to deejay around Europe, hitting the fashion capitals
of Milan, Paris, London, Barcelona,
Athens... They have also completed remixes for She
Wants Revenge and rock heavyweight’s Queens
Of The Stone Age. Tie this all in with an obsession
with online social networking and you have a very active wide ranging
fan base worldwide.
Their debut album “In The Clouds”
is a co-production with Fabien Waltmann
(programming and remix work for U2, Madonna and No Doubt),
it was recorded and mixed in London, Madrid and New York (2005-2007).
There is a wide array of additional vocals from the likes of Brian
Molko (Placebo), Samantha
Fox and Miguel Bosé
and it is a trip through the mind and moods of the band in the yearsit
took to finally reach fruition.
