Late Night Feelings (aka Karan Naik) recently released his debut EP, Heartbreak Hotel, on May 21. Late Night Feelings pulled emotions, lyrics, and energy for the project from a breakup at the peak of quarantine 2020. After not receiving any closure, he took to music to reflect and speak his truth about the end of the relationship. “It allowed me to heal, grow, and move on from that time of my life,” says Late Night Feelings.
“Forever Goodbye” allowed him to finally feel free, which abruptly sparked the inspiration for the following songs. “Some Nights” is a mental health anthem about pushing through tough times, a reminder that is commonly needed during breakups. Every track on the project finds a way to seamlessly touch on the most difficult parts of dating while maintaining a sense of hope and clarity.
The EP’s title track, “Heartbreak Hotel,” is about feeling stuck in a metaphorical place of pain and turmoil in one’s mind. “It’s so easy to get in your head after a breakup and feel like the heartbreak is never going to end,” says Late Night Feelings. “Heartbreak Hotel” is a fun song that explores that inexhaustible feeling, but makes listeners want to jam at the same time. The EP takes fans on a journey from the start of grieving a relationship through the uplifting feeling of finding peace. “This project helped me heal in a way that I wasn’t able to before. It allowed me to write my own story and give myself closure,” says Late Night Feelings. Heartbreak Hotel is the first tease to Late Night Feelings’ debut album coming soon.
