HOOPS ON TOP

Bloomington's Hoops share the video for their blissed-out new single "On Top", one of the many highlights from the group's forthcoming debut LP Routines.

premiere: Hoops announce new EP for Fat Possum, share first single “Cool 2″

HOOPS EP

"Cool 2 was one of the first songs we wrote for the EP. We like it because it is short, but it also represents what we want to do as a band. We tried to create an atmosphere around a short chord progression."
