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.
