Anthemic power pop four-piece Hot Chelle Rae — who you may remember for their breakout 2011 single “Tonight, Tonight” — are back with a new song, “Hung Up,” a cover of Madonna‘s single by the same name. (Just kidding, not really, but how rad would that be?)
No, HCR’s “Hung Up” is a sprightly, uptempo pop-rock jam with a soaring melody that evokes One Direction‘s hook-driven style with a little of the grown-up vibe of Maroon 5 or fun.; it might be slight, but enormously effective. Listen after the jump.
