New Music: Neon Hitch, "Silly Girl." Also, Who Is Neon Hitch?

Neon Hitch (her actual name) is a rising electropop musician from London who won't say how old she is, and whose first single, "Get Over U," made some waves back in January (see below for the video; head over here for a free MP3). She just released another song, "Silly Girl," and although it's apparently not an official single, it was produced/co-written by the big-name team of Benny Blanco and Switch (also responsible for tracks from Britney, Ke$ha, Santigold, and Beyonce), and will likely appear on her debut album.

She sounds a little bit like Robyn, but the overall effect is filthier, twitchier — more Robyn mixed with Nelly Furtado. I'm not sure how much I like it yet, but I'm currently on my sixth listen, and it's growing on me. Thoughts?

Josh is like Germany Ambitious and Misunderstood

According to Wikipedia, "Her father was a lighting technician."
Well that explains the name, sort of.


Silly girl sounds like she's doing what Jessie J did on that Do It Like A Dude song, with, like, alarm hiccups. And just like with the aforementioned, her voice sounds way better when she's actually singing full phrases.


I am getting a little tired of Switch's "is this track ripped off of a skippy CD? Is that what it's supposed to sound like? Do people even make CDs anymore?" aesthetic. Yet I still kind of like the song!?


Went to her page, listened to a few songs and I have to say that it's really catchy stuff. That's the formula though - the same formula folks like Ke$sha are using. Not the most evolved artist but it sounds like good subway music.


I like "Black & Blue" the most. Neon's great!


Ew. Shudder. Ew.


The voice does not go with the picture. That said, yuck.


The hitch is going to be good. What they wanted to know is all in there. - BannersBroker
