NYC’s Hear Hear bring a dynamic and energetic flare with their new single “Defibrillator.” Rhythmically rich with a simple catchy swagger on the chorus; the duo pushes/pull between a driving familiar beat on the verses and a head-bobbing low tom heavy swing under the chorus. It’s hard not to draw comparisons to the Brooklyn warehouse scene of the early aughts here and Parquet Courts, but we doubt they’d mind. The track wraps with an extended chorus with added vocal layers you’ll be wishing were twice as long.
“Defibrillator is a song about how twenty-dollar ramen is too expensive. And about some other things that might drive a person crazy. We wanted to embrace our inner garage-band sound and just sort of let loose and have fun with it,” says the duo.
