HOAX, an indie pop-rock band from Queens, New York creates the sonics and concepts behind their self-described style of “empathy pop” music. Their modern vintage musical sound draws from a wide range of influences like 60’s pop, 70’s Motown, and alternative R&B. They like to see themselves as “the beautiful sound of sadness”, a description coined by a close friend. Their music thematically focuses on the human condition, explorations of social constructs, and the decisions people make based from them, all tucked underneath pop melodies.
Their latest single ‘Into The Black Hole’ is a reflection on what love is. Is love intense and turbulent or quiet and patient? The use black hole as a metaphor of a safe place where they feel peaceful and complete.
