Molehill-Finish Line

It’s been a couple years since the last time we heard from Molehill, but they’ve been keeping busy. Today we’re getting our first listen to a single from their new EP Hostage, and as usual for Molehill it’s an evolution without turning their backs on what has been working for them over the years.

Molehill were their usual awesome selves, … Continue reading Molehill at SubT 5/2/2017

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 … Continue reading Molehill-“Hearts On Fire”
