Hit Like A Girl are a band led by Nicolle Maroulis, who also plays keys in Kississippi’s live band and also founded the non-profit No More Dysphoria. They’ve released two full-lengths already, 2017’s You Make Sense and last year’s What Makes Love Last, and last month they shared a new track named after the organization that they started.
Today, Maroulis is putting out another new song, “It’s Not Me,” a track that simmers and sears as it lays out the failings of a relationship in exacting detail. It’s a black cloud, pattering drums and feedback off-setting potent scenes of bitter disappointment, like this one: “When I asked you to marry me, I wasn’t kidding/ You laughed and tossed the engagement ring/ And I bet you did it on purpose/ Was it worth it?/ You snapped a picture of me in the river searching for it.”
Fans of Camp Cope’s strained specificity will appreciate Maroulis’ lyrics, and there’s a whole lot of messy emotion driving “It’s Not Me.” Listen to it via Flood below.
