Release Date: November 4th, 2016
Track Name: “New Friends”
The latest single from indie musician Hypocrite In A Hippie Crypt gives a whimsical feel to some not-so-whimsical modern issues.
Released on Already Dead Tapes and Records,“New Friends” is tied together with the perfect balance of light melodies and raw vocals.
The song starts out with a light flow of guitar picking and vocals that describe that one painfully shy person we all know that makes you work hard to gain their trust. If you are that person, you’ll connect to this song on a more personal level.
The nearly four minutes of playful keys, acoustic instrumentation and powerful lyrics take you on a trip. It starts out simple and slowly builds with gradual additions of melodies and choir singers. With the additional voice of Katy Kirby, this song flows smoothly and hypnotizes you.
“New Friends” is a killer example of lo-fi self expression at its finest. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself playing this song on repeat.
