Mini Mansions have created the ultimate ironic love song on latest single ‘Hey Lover’. Alison Mosshart from the kills makes a tête-à-tête style cameo on the track…
‘Hey Lover’ is a conversational duet between Mini Mansions frontman Michael Shuman and Mossheart. It appears to be a playful nod to duets from back in the day by the likes of Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin.
The lyrics could be considered unbearably cheesy but it’s easy to spot the sarcasm with a few swear words and the overly breathy delivery.
Although ‘Hey Lover’ sounds a million miles away from bassist Zach Dawes and keyboard player Tyler Parkford’s previous work in QOTSA, the lofi glam rock stylings of the track will still appeal to fans of the band along with the likes of Arctic Monkeys and Miles Kane.
‘Hey Lover’ has a music video that further plays up the colloquial nature of the song. It depicts Shuman and Mossheart serenade each other.
Mini Mansions fans can catch the band in the North East at Hit The North on 5th May 2019. Tickets to the Newcastle festival, featuring talented acts such as Jake Bugg, Tom Grennan, Shame, Then Tonnes, The Blinders and over 100 more acts, are on sale now.
