MuuMuse Approved: Neon Hitch – “Get Over U”
Well, here’s a song that’s good.
Neon Hitch is the self-described gypsy type who’s been all the rage over the interwebz as of late as one of pop’s most intriguing up-and-coming chanteuses. (No, but really, she’s got quite the colorful background–she used to be in the circus as both a trapeze artist and a fire swinger for one thing.)
After inking a publishing gig with EMI and co-penning/singing back up for acts like Ke$ha (“Blah Blah Blah”) and 3OH!3 (“Follow Me Down”), Hitch was signed to Warner Bros. Records by fellow songwriter and former American Idol judge, Kara DioGuardi in 2010.
Today, the singer just premiered her soon-to-be debut single on ArjanWrites. Spoiler Alert: It’s fantastic.
Produced by Benny Blanco and co-penned by Sia, “Get Over U” is a twinkling, stomping sad disco melody filled with warm, lush synthesizers and dramatic strings. It’s incredibly hypnotic, romantic and hopelessly infectious–the type of stuff that we gag about over here at the MuuMuse. You know, like Kylie Minogue‘s “The One” or Namie Amuro‘s “Come.” In other words: I die.
Plus, the entire vocal melody absolutely screams Sia (in other words, “quality!”), especially during the chorus–so much so that it’s entirely possible she’s featured in the background vocals.
It’s essentially Robyn‘s “Dancing On My Own” for 2011, isn’t it?
According to a member of the PopJustice forums, this will be Neon Hitch’s debut single and a video has already been shot.
No clue on how the world will take to this one just yet, but I’m officially pumped.
