Bloomington, Indiana’s Hoops will release their full-length debut album Routines on May 5 via Fat Possum, and today they share the album’s next single.
Hoops - which consists of three songwriters - share a track written by Keagan Beresford entitled 'On Letting Go' that showcases a new slow-burning yet still blissed-out and synth-laden side to the band’s sound.
“We experimented and threw out a lot of ideas to make this song,” explains Beresford. “I wrote it about somebody I met and hung out with briefly and then never really saw again, so I wanted the instruments to reflect his kinda of sad, longing feeling in the backdrop of a groovy pop song. I think we succeeded, because it’s hard for me to listen to this one without wanting to dance around a bit while shedding one tear.”
