What is ugliness? Venture into the darkness with the new indie rock single laced with latin and german expressionist influences.
The track is the first to be released off Dante Mazzetti's fall record Hotel Vol. 2. Keeping with the themes and story-telling from his July EP Hotel Vol. 1. “Ugly” continues the tale of a troubled man finding a new life and new challenges.
Reflecting on “Ugly”, Dante Mazzetti offers a clear explanation, "The word ugly has such an immense amount of power. People react strongly to it - especially when it refers to a woman. That in itself says something. I purposefully wrote ‘Ugly’ to be able to be interpreted in different ways. I like to let the listener make the decision on how they want to receive the meaning. Some people hear it as being about a man who is sponging off of an aesthetically unattractive woman. I like to think of it as a song about a woman who is beautiful on the outside, yet has an ugly soul. I hope to inspire the listener to question the meaning of ugliness and to search for more in my songs than the surface understanding of the lyrics."
