Neon Hitch is an English singer who describes herself as “If Kate Bush went on a safari in the jungle and took acid with a synthesizer”. You thought that was crazy? Check these ‘facts’ out:
- 1. Hitch was raised in a gypsy family of circus performers.
- 2. Before leaving, aged 15, she traveled Europe performing as a fire dancer & trapeze artist.
- 3. Hitch was previously the flatmate of Amy Winehouse.
Well I guess that explains a few things about her initial self-description.
Anyway, I just stumbled across her mashup cover of Mike Posner’s lyrics from Cooler Than Me and Sia’s instrumental from Breathe Me, and it’s pretty fucking cool.
Neon Hitch was signed to Warner Music Group (spit) by American Idol’s Kara DioGuardi (who also discovered Jason DeRulo) and is currently working with American producer Benny Blanco (Ke$ha, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Santigold, Spank Rock, etc) on her debut album Beg, Borrow and Steal.
She’s another act I think we will be seeing a lot more of in the future.
