Cults' Guitarist Gabe Rodriguez's solo project continues with the new track, which will be on his forthcoming sophomore album.
We all deal with grief in different ways. For Hideout -- the solo project of New York-based musician Gabe Rodriguez -- despair gets flipped into simple, striking indie pop hooks; it’s helped him make sense of a difficult two years since releasing his debut album, Rookie. Rodriguez lost his brother during that time, alongside work as a touring guitarist with Cults and returning to Brooklyn to record Hideout’s So Many Hoops / So Little Time, due Feb. 3 on Small Plates Records. Billboard is excited to premiere "I Got Your Message," a standout cut from it.
“This is the principle track on the record,” Rodriguez tells Billboard. “It was a musical focal point while writing the rest of the songs. The lyrics are about when I was touring in Europe and received terrible news from back home -- the disconnect from reality while traveling with friends.”
