Hit Bargain are the progenitors of a new genre — “queencore“, the intersection of queerqueening and hardcore. They are as much a part of the LA underground, as an answer to it. Their debut self-titled EP was released March 2016.

Their single “Circuits That Cannot Be Cut” is a reimagining of the major motion picture, Die Hard, disguised as wry social commentary on gun and police violence. Bruce Willis is their spirit animal because he represents the sensitive everyman, called upon to be a hero–much in the way that Hit Bargain’s feminist anthems are a call to awareness for their listeners.

Hit Bargain is comprised of Nora Singh (vocals) Mike Barron (guitar and vocals), Anton Hochheim (drums), and Sean Monaghan (bass). Their collective resume includes These Are Powers, North HighlandsAblebody and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart.

With songs about gender, power, and the movies, Hit Bargain takes you beyond the visceral thrills of punk
while still indulging in them.” – Noisey

“A whole new kind of feminism in music.” – FADER

“Hit Bargain build towards the kind of cathartic breakdowns that we tend to crave from hardcore music, but they avoid the feeling of macho aggression while doing so.” – Stereogum

“Six fiery in(on?)-your-face cuts of ripping, danceable punk.” – BrooklynVegan
