Indie-alt duo HOAX drop ‘Could’, the first single from their upcoming album ‘b?’. The pair from Queens have totalled millions of streams through their unique brand of ‘empathy pop’, which they draw from ‘the beautiful sound of sadness’. With influences ranging from the melodic 60’s through to alt-R&B. ‘Could’ sees a collision of wide ranging instrumentation, from frenetic drums through soaring guitars and thumping bass lines.
“‘Could’ is the first snapshot of many narratives told in the forms of songs on the album that opens up a begrudging conversation everyone must eventually come to have with oneself. Questions that highlight the essence of BEING – which if not asked in a timely manner, might result in years and years passing by – until you finally look backwards through a telescope of regret.”
