hotplug – “Mass Transit”


Crafted from the band’s homemade Sacramento-based studio, “Mass Transit” is a new single from hotplug. Serene, jangly verses escalate into a gripping hook with expressively grungy nostalgia. The swelling distortion captivates upon the “fine by me,” vocal shrug, excelling seamlessly from nonchalant jangly pop into a raucously gripping alt-rock vigor. “Mass Transit” excels with its evolution from sweetly endearing, jangly charm into this nostalgic blast of a hook.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2023’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
