fters tempting viral celebrity on their video for "In Quiet Streets", Hit Bargain are back with their scorcher "Hell Is Real" via the good folks at NPR Music!
Come for the fun, stay for an exposition into the xenophobia & capitalist complacency underpinning our broken system. NPR's Stefanie Fernandez on "Hell Is Real": "It's akin what you might feel glancing off the interstate on a long drive and being reminded, in big bold font by any of the numerous billboards that hang off middle America like earrings, that hell is real, and hell is maybe here."

We are beyond psyched to announce that Lonely Parade have joined our league of sonic mutants. Head over to Noisey for the debut of "I'm So Tired" - the biggest tune you'll hear all DD/MM/YY. Vocalist, Charlotte Dempsey, opines:
“’I’m So Tired’ is based on the feeling of seasonal depression. It’s about feeling numb when you’re overwhelmed with a situation you can’t cope with, and not processing the emotions at hand,” Dempsey says. “The song was written about an unrequited love, and feeling anxious and insecure about your position, and trapped in the situation."
Hit Bargain share their immense talents with the internet on "In Quiet Streets", from the band's forthcoming "Potential Maximizer" LP (05/11). Front person Nora Singh on song's ethos: "was written about the darkness that lingers within the corners of American life. Singh calls the song “a quick study of the suburbs, where things like gun violence, racism and sexual abuse are tucked away neatly behind manicured hedges.”
