2nd Grade have shared the fourth and final single from their debut album Hit to Hit. It's another short 'n sweet taste of the humble power pop that defines the album. Read the accompanying interview over at The Alternative.
"The record’s latest single “Boys in Heat” clocks in at just over a minute and is incredibly catchy, so it’s easy to find yourself on your fourth or fifth listen without noticing. It’s a confident indie rock jam that exudes carefree summer fun." —The Alternative
