Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part of our Song of the day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJ’s think you should hear. Today’s song, featured on the Morning Show with John Richards, is “Teasin' " by Hiccup from their forthcoming record, Imaginary Enemies, due March 24th on Father/Daughter Records.

Hiccup - Teasin' (MP3)To put it simply, Hiccup write a good hook. The Brooklyn three-piece punk group have released just a handful of singles to date, but immediately evident in their music is a keen sense of melody and momentum, building off classic guitar pop groups from The Undertones to Fastbacks to Alvvays. Hiccup's two vocalists, Hallie Bulleit and Alex Clute, met playing in the house band for NY underground favorite The Chris Gethard Show. The group's propellant brand of sun-inflected guitar pop is centered on Bulleit and Clute's intertwined vocal parts and a dense wall of guitar fuzz. Today's featured song, also the lead single off Hiccup's debut LP, "Teasin'," is an under three minute burst of energy which shows that the band has plenty more hooks to come.

Hiccup has no tour dates announced for the West Coast at this time, but check out their Facebook and Bandcamp for more information. Meanwhile, here's the top notch video for "Teasin'":
