HOOPS
Hoops thrive in the in-between. The Indiana quartet craft hyper-melodic songs, built around power-pop chords, deceptively complex drum patterns, and rock-anthem sentiments that hide some tellingly dark thoughts. Their full-length debut, Routines, sound both warmly familiar and jarringly distinctive. A kernel of ache lies at the heart of each verse and chorus: nothing cynical or pessimistic, just bittersweet and honest. Not knowing the right way to do things, they came up with their own way-a solid DIY philosophy. "We had an idea of how we wanted our music to sound, but we didnt always know how to achieve it," says Drew Auscherman, who plays guitars and keyboards, writes and sings. "There was always some exploring and figuring things out, so it took some time to get to what we wanted to sound like."
