If the lyrics to Hitlist’s latest single ‘I Am in Love with An Idiot’ don’t resonate then quite honestly, I envy you. But even if you’re not moved by the sentiment, you’ll definitely be caught up in the Ska rhythms the up and coming powerhouse have packed into their punchy, high-octane sticky-sweet melodies.
Whilst the instrumentals were safely kept within the Pop Punk/Ska arena, the vocals didn’t fail to resound with a delectably inviting yet simultaneously anarchistic Post Punk twang. Brighton has always been the home of sensationally styled pioneering acts, Hitlist definitely aren’t an exception to the rule with their vibrant, instantly accessible sound. I can’t even imagine how amazing the energy of Hitlist would be at their live shows!
