Asleep by Hola Chica – the stylish combo

Not even a couple of seconds into this song and I’ve already recalled some pleasant memories of my Indie Pop years when I was addicted to acts like Two Door Cinema Club, Foals, and my holy worshipped Blur.

The 5-piece band from Barcelona, Hola Chica, ingenuously revisit the late 2000’s style in a fresh and danceable fashion with their latest single Asleep.

With a glittery and glossy sound, Asleep is a smooth effort that combines catchy pop melodies with a generous fix of synths while continuing to rely its structural base on guitars in pure Indie Pop style.

If you add the fact that besides wanting to sing along, you’ll be dragged to dance to the disco-ish rhythm, you know they’ve found a stylish combo.

Head over Youtube to listen to Asleep for yourself.
