song: "Capitulate" - Hit Bargain

"Capitulate" is enraged and furious punk rock that's made for playing as loud as you can handle. The lead single from Hit Bargain's upcoming Buzz Records release out May 11 is brash and unrelenting, both in its energy and force. And if the single sounds purposeful and hellbent on spreading its message with listeners that's purposeful. All the thunderous fuzz and accelerated percussion is made to propel an especially needed narrative. As vocalist Nora Singh told Stereogum: "I wrote it in response to the real experiences of a friend navigating sex, relationships, and their own emerging queerness in LA. It predates any hashtag or recent public scandal, but it is a part of the same conversation. What I wish for everyone is to find an intersection of pleasure, bodily integrity, and respect — without abuse or shame.”
