Watch a stripped-down performance of Hop Along’s “I Saw My Twin”
Few Philadelphia bands gained as much national attention this year as Hop Along, who just this summer played both the XPoNential Music Festival and Made In America – not to mention went on two headlining tours, plus a run supporting The War on Drugs in the spring. Now, the indie rock darlings are heading out on tour with none other than Modest Mouse, and just today released a video featuring an intimate performance of their song, “I Saw My Twin”— which you can check out below.
The video, which was part of the 5 at 5 series presented by Ace Motel and Martin Guitar, shows a stripped-down version of the track off of their latest, and highly praised LP Painted Shut. “I Saw My Twin” emerges slowly, putting a focus on lead Frances Quinlan’s unique and mesmerizing vocals, before evolving into a more full-fledged indie rock jam. Unfortunately the fall tour will not bring them through the Philly area, but we’re hoping we’ll see them again sooner than later.
