Last year Hop Along released their third album, Bark Your Head Off, Dog, which was followed by the quick sell out of their show at Oslo in November. The album addresses disappointment, particularly in man’s misuse of power, and relates accounts from the periphery one’s attempts to retreat from the lengthening shadows of tyrants, both historical and everyday.
It features the familiar sounds that have always made the band allergic to genre: grunge, folk, punk, and power pop all appear, with inspiration from ELO to Elvis Costello to ‘70s girl group vocal arrangements. This time around, they’ve added strings, more intricate rhythms and lush harmonies.
