New Hallelujah The Hills – “Nurses 5 Float Past”

This brief, unquestionably catchy shot of story-time pop from Boston’s Hallelujah The Hills documents the fruits of their first trek to an actual, bona fide studio. After the opening barbershop harmony, it shifts into an edgy little pop song that reminds us, wait, of something Promise Ring might’ve uttered during their heyday. Then they lace in some strings and it goes somewhere else just as exuberant. We’ve been seduced by Collective Psychosis Begone’s group anthemics in the past, but this raises the bar from their debut a few notches.
