20 Questions With Neon Hitch
I recently got the opportunity to ask Neon Hitch 20 fun questions, check them out!
You had a massive hit with Gym Class Hero’s “Ass Back Home” that you were featured on. How did that collaboration come about?
My boy Benny Blanco was doing the record and asked if I’d wanna be on the hook, I love gym class heroes so was more than happy to have the opportunity.
As an internet fashion blogger and journalist myself, I know how important social media sites are! I read that you were actually discovered through Myspace, is that true? How did that exactly go down?
Yes! Myspace changed my life, I was homeless in the UK and my only hope everyday was checking my Myspace. One day I got a message from Benny Blanco’s manager and he offered to fly me out. I’m a very spontaneous person so I was straight on that plane!
You have a new single out now called “Gold” featuring Tyga. Were you guys in the studio together while working on this or were both your parts recored separately? What’s the track about?
We actually recorded our part separately. It’s a psychedelic love story about finding that guy who stands out in a crowd, that magical person you cant take your eyes off.
I heard that your up-bringing was super interesting and that you lived like a true gypsy, working at circuses, living in caravans, and doing trapeze, that sounds so amazing; I have to have you elaborate on it a bit for us!
