For fans of other great indie rock bands like Slingshot Dakota and Lemuria, Hop Along is a fantastic, female-fronted group with enormous talent. Founded in 2008 and consisting of vocalist Frances Quinlan, drummer Mark Quinlan, bassist Tyler Long, and guitarist Joe Reinhart, Hop Along is a band with wonderfully quirky sound and charm.
The band has put out two albums so far, Get Disowned in 2012 and Painted Shut (which you can listen to on the Spotify player above) just last year. Get Disowned was recently re-issued on the band’s new record label, Saddle Creek, and is gaining new-found attention after having been largely disregarded since the release of Painted Shut.
You can catch Hop Along in May at the Shaky Knees Music Festival in Atlanta, Georgia and at the Sasquatch Music Festival in Quincy, Washington. Give them a listen and let us know what you think!
