Coming to the UK shores and charts, and already a prime candidate for radio play, ‘Strange Moves’ is the new single from dance pop progressive pop group The HARDKISS and collaborator Kazaky.
Having already won national music awards for Best Album and Best Single at the Yuna Awards in their native Ukraine, the Kiev based group are already hugely popular close to home*. Now they are coming to Britain to spread their own brand of independent dance pop progressive pop to a wider audience. Their unique blend of independent spirit and pop music, plus a varied influence base which includes Rita Ora and Paramore at opposite ends of the spectrum, stands them in good stead to continue making a name for themselves on these shores.
And with the help of this slick, colourful video, they’re set to do just that.
Self-contained and very proud of it, the songs are composed, recorded and produced in house, as are the videos. It’s astounding that the production is so clean and crisp, mirroring the best work out there at the moment in spite of the band’s independence.
That talent has seen The HARDKISS become darlings of the festival scene around Europe, raising awareness that Ukranian music is on the rise. And with EDM laced pop so huge in the charts at the moment, the stage is set for the emergence of The HARDKISS.
