Your good ol' Adelaide mates, Heaps Good Friends, have recently dropped a fantastic EP titled 'Hug Me', just in time for their upcoming tour around Australia. Since releasing their first single 'Let's Hug Longer' in 2016, HGF have been skyrocketing within not only the local scene, but nationally as well. They scored themselves the slot as the Triple J Unearthed winner's for Groovin The Moo 2017, toured with The Jungle Giants for their "banger tour of dreams", won the South Australian Music Awards for best new artist and were the 4th most played artist on Unearthed in 2017. So, it's safe to say that these locals are absolutely killing it at the moment.
The 6 track EP was released on the 1st of March and contains the euphoric pop songs of your dreams, and will have you dancing from sunrise to sunset (if you have it on repeat that is). Your Hug Me adventure starts with the well-known track, 'Let's Hug Longer', and if you don't have "someone light the wick of my firework" running in your head after this banger, then you didn't listen to it enough. Track 2, 'Olympic Sneakers', will be your new work-out song. It gets your blood flowing and body ready to run, like you're in an 80's action film. 'Online Shopping Trolley' is the most mellow out of the 6 songs, with the lyrics "I'm scared of you, like online dating and spiders had a baby" this song brings an interesting and sweet feel to the EP.
Track 4 'I Could Eat a Full Pack of Yo Yo's' brings the energy right back up, getting listeners back on their feet to dance to the funky drum beat, with a breakdown of wicked bass and synths that bring back those 80's action vibes. 'Cry Like A Crime' and 'Lobster Bibs' are two phenomenal tunes to end such a remarkably produced EP, which we cannot wait to hear being played loud and live at The Rocket Bar on the 20th of April. Make sure to grab yourself a copy of the EP and hold it and hug it for as long as you can!
