Hoops – “Rules”

After gaining traction with their self-titled EP, Indiana four-piece Hoops have announced the release of their debut album Routines, due out in May on Fat Possum. Hoops have been offering up springing lo-fi concoctions since their formation, and they keep things going with the newly released lead single “Rules.” Propelled by ample grooving keys and guitar, “Rules” is a two minute jaunt into the past when synths and subdued vocals were king. Listen now via The Fader.
