Philadelphia’s Hop Along are gearing up to release their new album ‘Bark Your Head Off, Dog’. And there’s not long to wait either! It’s out on 6th April - that’s next Friday! Hurrah!
So far the group have aired two tracks from the collection: opener ‘How Simple’ and ‘Not Abel’. Now, with the album just a stone’s throw away, they’ve shared the album’s closer, ‘Prior Things’. It explores a relationship that was never meant to be. Rather than seeming overly bitter though, it’s wrapped up in a wave of chamber-pop strings and strident guitar riffs, anchored by Frances Quinlan’s powerhouse vocals.
Speaking of some of the concepts behind the record at the time of its announcement, Frances said: “By thinking you’re powerless, you’re really robbing yourself. I’m at a point in my life where I’m saying instead, ‘Well, what can I do?’”
Listen to ‘Prior Things’ below.
