With a wandering eye that fantasises about that perfect time to make the move you undoubtedly crave, The Manatee Room hates that they are only interested in the rare ‘Expensive Taste‘.
The Manatee Room is a Columbus, Ohio-based indie-pop 3-piece band that makes that relevant music all about topics that we have all felt before in our lives. After being on an enforced hiatus since early 2020 due to this dreadful pandemic that has been lingering on for too long, they make a much-awaited return on their latest single.
”The Manatee Room meshes angsty lyrics with addictive rhythmic melody.” ~ The Manatee Room
With a carefully crafted sound and insightful lyrics that have you feeling like you have perhaps missed the boat of romance, The Manatee Room brings us a single-person anthem that has you wondering if you will be able to connect wholeheartedly with someone who truly understands you authentically.
‘Expensive Taste‘ from the Columbus, Ohio-based indie-pop 3-piece band The Manatee Room, is that story about hoping that your special crushes notice you enough you pull in close and take your breath away. With so many closed doors and empty hearts around, this is the kind of song that will take you into an expectant place of brewing courtship. When you are into someone so much and the timing just seems off, the world can seem like a truly lonely place at times.
