Today we are very excited to premiere Thief Club's "Follow You." The solo project of Nick of Hit The Lights, he channeled the style that brought Hit The Lights to prominence - aggressive pop-punk songs with honest lyrics and humongous hooks. This body of work proves why Hit The Lights wrote some of the most influential (and in my opinion underrated) releases in the genre. "Follow You" features site favorite Shane Henderson of Valencia lending his voice on the track. Listen to it in the replies.
I was chatting with Nick of Hit The Lights about his new project Thief Club. He will be releasing a full length called My Heavy later this year. It was produced by Rob Freeman and features appearances from Will Pugh (Cartel), Shane Henderson (Valencia), and Colin Ross (original singer of Hit The Lights). Freeman produced Skip School, Start Fights, and from what I've heard so far, it seems like it will carry that vibe for this release.
Today we're featuring up and coming Rochester, NY based rapper AJ Curry for his song "Cloud 9." The track features the soothing vocals of Nick Thompson and was produced by Kevin Mahoney of Hit The Lights. Head to his AP.net profile to listen and leave your thoughts in the replies.
