Hotel Ugly – Fish Maan

Hotel Ugly is an ongoing accumulation of musical creations self produced by American Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mike Vince. Hotel Ugly gained worldwide recognition during the pandemic when Mike released his first demo “The Ugly EP.” Since then, it absolutely exploded, with millions upon millions of listeners and streams on Spotify, currently sitting at #315 in the world. Singles such as ‘Shut up My Moms Calling’ have garnered the attention of a global audience, with Mike’s chilled, fresh and unique approach to songwriting turning the heads of almost everyone.

It’s crisp modern indie pop, mixed with R&B and chilled hip-hop beats, and Mike’s standout vocal that has seen Hotel Ugly become one of the biggest names in the industry, and recently entered the Billboard Hot 100 with ‘Shut up…’. Blowing up on TikTok too, Hotel Ugly are also a viral sensation in the social media world, all helping to the ever growing success.

After the success with melancholy indie banger ‘Action Figures Fighting’, his first release of 2023, Mike now goes back to his roots with follow up single ‘Fish Maan’. 

Chilled and synth driven, ‘Fish Maan’ is a slow R&B pop jam that will appease the global audience that Ugly has accumulated since 2020. Very much in the same vein as the renowned ‘Shut up My Moms Calling’, it’s melodically sweet and fruitful throughout with a less serious message behind it. It’s exactly what put Vince on the map, and you can hear why in what is such a unique and now signature sound that is addictive to listen to on repeat.

It’s clear to see why Hotel Ugly has achieved what he has, blending together indie and pop sensibilities in this new found offering, showcasing their musical flexibility and nuance. ‘Fish Maan’ is a complete throwback to retro Ugly, in what has already been a huge year for Mike Vince and co.
