Chicago rockers Molehill have released the first of three singles coming out over the next few months that will make up their Hearts On Fire EP. The title track premiered on 50Thirdand3rd‘s website yesterday. The protest anthem feels very in-step with the times, and I’m all for any songs that stand behind the #Resist movement.
Molehill has always been a band who knows what they want to sound like, and it sounds like they wanted to take some chances here and change it up a bit. I especially enjoy Pete Manhart’s vocals, specifically in the last bit of the song-I don’t remember another track of theirs where his voice is so out in front of everything else, and certainly not the kind of guttural growl he displays here.
If you dig the song you can pre-order the physical version of the EP here. You will receive each song digitally as they’re released ahead of the physical disc. If you’re in the Chicago area, the band is playing a release show with Bassell & The Supernaturals at Logan Square Auditorium (moved from Double Door) on Friday February 24th-tickets will be available at the door. It’s a 21+ show, so leave the kids at home.
