Neon Hitch was definitely on my watch list for 2012, but she seemed to disappear towards the end of the year after releasing “F*ck You Betta” and “A** Back Home.” Apparently, Hitch’s debut album was delayed last year and hasn’t received an official release date, so to fill her time in the meantime she recorded Happy Neon, a six-track EP, to hold herself and fans over until her anticipated debut.
The EP gives fans a glimpse into the mind of Neon Hitch with songs like “Pink Fields.” “I never found religion but was born with freedom. That’s the one thing I pray will not be taken,” the self-proclaimed gypsy sings. A song later she’s over being deep. “Midnight Sun,” includes the line “He wanna f*ck me like a rockstar.” In “Jailhouse” she speaks of the label drama and sings once again of feeling trapped.
It’s not a full album, but it’s just enough to make sure fans don’t forget about Neon Hitch. And maybe if she receives enough attention with this EP that will put some pressure on her label to speed things up!
