Hop Along make the kind of cutting, charming indie rock, grunge and power pop that fans of Built To Spill, Rilo Kiley and Modest Mouse feast on. Point of emphasis is of course the torrential voice of Frances Quinlan: powerful, disarming and frayed. Hop Along bend, thanks to Quinlan’s presence, sharp, passionate anthems out of intimate diary entries. Previous album Bark Your Head Off, Dog focuses on the balance of power in relationships. At Best Kept Secret, however, we’ll gladly give Hop Along the power to completely conquer our hearts.
