We're thrilled to announce that LA's own Hit Bargain have joined our league of sonic mutants! Featuring members of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Cold Beat, North Highlands, These Are Powers and Beach Fossils, the band apply their considerable pedigree to crafting a sound that is at once inventive, cerebral and rawly engaging. Frontperson Nora Singh on "Capitulate":
“I wrote it in response to the real experiences of a friend navigating sex, relationships, and their own emerging queerness in LA. It predates any hashtag or recent public scandal, but it is a part of the same conversation. What I wish for everyone is to find an intersection of pleasure, bodily integrity, and respect - without abuse or shame.”
Hit Bargain shared their punishing lead single "Capitulate" with Stereogum, and announced that debut LP, Potential Maximizer, will be hitting the streets on May 11th - pre-order now, and read more over at Stereogum.
