The Deli Philly’s Best of 2012 Poll Top Performer: Hop Along

The Deli Philly’s Best of 2012 Poll Top Performer: Hop Along

The Frances Quinlan-fronted trio of Hop Along embraces the raw, unfiltered straight-from-gut-to-the-listeners’-ears approach. It’s that instant reaction, “this isn’t staged, these are my real thoughts and fears” intimacy that gives Hop Along such authenticity. It’s easy to buy in. This isn’t fabricated or produced for effect; it’s just real. Using that as a starting point and coupling it with instrumentation that fits the context of the lyrics from bright and uplifting (energetically clean and harmonic) to down and out (ragged and dreary), all while Frances does her best to make you feel meaning from each and every word she sings is what you’ll find on the group’s official debut LP Get Disowned. Hop Along is a brutally honest band that opens the closet and shares all its skeletons. (Photo by Tiffany Yoon) - Michael Colavita
