I recently found the new release from Hello August in my inbox… and to say I’m a bit obsessed may not be far fetched. Having never heard of them before, I dug a bit deeper to see what I had missed… but it turns out not much.
The Dutch duo consists of two Instagram/Youtube influencers (Rachel & Laura) who bring incredibly hot Pop vibes to match their looks. Having only released their debut single, “Wrong Chick”, in January, they were quickly added to rotation on two of Holland’s biggest radio stations and even ended up catching the ear of SIA who added the single to her popular, personal Spotify playlist.To follow on that success, Hello August has recently released their new single, “Drunk Again”, and it plays as an absolute anthem to young love and dysfunction. Coming along with a youthful, playful and seductive video, shot in Las Vegas, the new single is sure garner attention from around the world. With a catchy as fuck hook, fun verses and a pumping yet simplistic production, the new single is an undeniable vibe that will for sure get stuck in your head (I’ve been rocking it heavy for weeks). In a formulated move of music business, Travie McCoy was brought on to drop a feature. In his signature style, he doesn’t miss a beat, playing off of the songs lyrics and portraying his feelings on the matter. While Travie may in fact help this tune reach greater heights, he undoubtedly takes a back seat to Hello August who absolutely dominate the track.
Everything about this track is just right. Do yourself a favor and get on board now. These girls are going to blow DaFuq up. I’d put money on it.
