From the venue:Hoops hail from Bloomington, Indiana, setting for the classic Disney film Breaking Away. Much like the filmâ€™s four protagonists escaping the clichÃ©s of post-high school life, Hoopsâ€™ Drew Auscherman, Kevin Krauter, Keagan Beresford, and James Harris gel on their self-titled record (Fat Possum). They push back against the current climate of clean, atmospheric indie pop, arriving at an infectiously buoyant and electric sound. â€œGoing Strongâ€ and â€œ4 Uâ€ move at a quick pace with an on-point rhythm section. Each song breathes new life into a genre teetering on exhaustion and moves listeners with melodies oozing with reverb and a falsetto that confirms your best years are ahead of you.
