Hit Back

Hit Back

 Illinois, USA

Hit Back is indie pop, but tells its parents it's alt/folk.


On their debut, Who Are These Weird Old Kids, Hit Back set up camp between electronic and organic pop. It was recorded in the autumn months with some overseas help from Swedish producer and musician Lindefelt (Fredrik, The LK) and possessed an uncommon confidence for a first effort. Uncompromisingly sweet pop hooks brush against thick electronic textures, diverse arrangements, and lean sonic landscapes reminiscent of Kings of Convenience's folk sensibilities. Their piano-based tracks recall a young Ben Gibbard, with more atmospheric instrumentation. 

Like the last time around, there are no microgenres and no niche approaches. This is just timeless and ornate music.

Hit Back songs have been featured in many productions, including festival-bound indie films, videos for OBEY Clothing, and the television show Suits.
