HI THERE WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO FOR A RIDE?
One evening in 2017, four friends shared a booth and a round of drinks.
The topic of conversation, as usual, revolved around ideas concerning musical direction and forms of artistic expression… something that was always swirling in the air between members of the group.
Each of them had met through some form of collaboration, usually as a supportive cast member in one another’s projects. Every one of these musical ventures had varied widely in scope and sound, from different forms of singer-songwriter exploration to brash rock and roll, all the way to retro-futuristic synthwave.
Each project brought with it a new form of expression, a new, learned musical vocabulary.
And so on that evening out, a plan formed.
From the culmination of all these acquired musical languages, they would make something new. Something that capitalized on their previous collaborations but also invited the listener to participate in a way that felt new and exciting.
Enter HARD HUGS, a synth-heavy, punk-rock-disco outfit formed in Helena, Montana. With a focus on aggressive groove and electronic textures, HH aims to create an experience that makes you want to move.
